wow... sounds good. i dont know quark myself except for the strange
yogurt stuff that they make in holland, it sounds a bit messy. but i use
Ilustrator and Pohotoshop whoops.

i will try. my 'enigmatic' series of etchings actually started as
digital art in photoshop, progressed to an 8-speaker work and then into
intaglio etchings - which were the best ones of all. enigmatic 7 is
going to be digital art again though - mainly cos i cant get back into
the art studio until the end of summer. bah :'(....

beautiful. please send me it privately if its digital. i would like to
see this... it sounds inspirational. i would think they would be
positive, i hope so...

i have just done a collage of spam with Jabber Wocky of the infamous
Plunderphonia mailing list. he and i got sick of the rather lewd spam
that came through on the list so he did some samples which i looped in
Flash, added to some HTML collage art - this is made by grabbing random
bits of html and pasting it without editing. hmm, well that one is
pretty bizarre to say the least, also it should be given a (R) rating.....

timbral brush strokes.... i like. timbre is my second medium... the
visuals i experience before composing translate directly into timbral
shapes and then into pitch and sound. mmmmm....
