"This music was created the way a painter creates a collection
of paintings: The artist works alone, by hand, mixing and layering
colors, modeling with light and shadow, hiding or revealing the
brush strokes; within the framework of a deliberate design, he
improvises freely and extemporaneously, so the work bears the
indelible stamp of the moment of creation.
I have chosen to paint with the true colors of acoustic string
instruments on the clear canvas of digital audio tape. These are
intimate personal works, not monumental productions, so I have
used no drums, synthesizers, or electric instruments. They are
a wordless communication of feelings and impressions, straight
from me to you." – Jim Hurley
- Finger Painting (Jim Hurley. 5:38). An expression of nostalgia for a better world we all seem to leave behind; an invitation to get your fingers messy again.
