AIR Series Presentation excerpt #2: Origins of The Books of Magra
On October 21st, I gave a first time ever overview presentation of the complete vision of The Books of Magra, for the AIR (Artist In Residence) series hosted by Keiko Honda.
I discussed the books, the music, and my use of symbologies to assemble and integrate all of these dynamic and extensive elements.
In this video, I discuss the origins of The Books of Magra. It began with a suicidal thought, and lead to a journey to Japan to study samurai philosophy. And then I had a vision of a unique cosmic ceremony that presented me with the centrepiece of the entire work.
If you have any thoughts or questions regarding anything in the video, I would love to hear from you!
