Doodle 6 In Response to Ornette Coleman’s “Science Fiction”

Doodle 6 In Response to Ornette Coleman’s “Science Fiction” was created after hearing the music performed on September 3, 2016 at Millennium Park in Chicago by the Bad Plus. Artists included Ethan Iverson piano, Reid Anderson bassist, drummer Dave King, Tim Berne on tenor sax, Sam Newsome soprano sax, and Ron Miles playing trumpet. The music moved me to look up Coleman and his free jazz music style as I waited for my bus ride home after the concert. Wikipedia says, “… Free jazz is an approach to jazz music that was first developed in the 1950s and 1960s as musicians attempted to alter, extend, or break down jazz convention, often by discarding fixed chord changes or tempos. Though the music of free jazz composers varied widely, a common feature was dissatisfaction with the limitations of bebophard bop, and modal jazz that had developed in the 1940s and 1950s…” I’ve been working through my own dissatisfaction with how photos look, how my photos look, and am exploring different styles and effects that express what I want to say and show. Here is one of my results.
