"I like to produce drawings in response to musical recordings because they provide a set duration as well as a structured pattern that I can listen to and repeat over again to produce a series with a similar size, density and energetic quality. When drawing music, the tension and movements affect the mark-making directly."

Claire Zakiewicz, The Aesthetics of Improvisation in Music and the Arts, 2020

This work was painted without sight while listening to a piece of recorded music by Steve Reich called Music for Eighteen Musicians.
