White On White

Stanley Schumacher

About this work:
Ever see the paintings of Robert Ryman? Lean, Spartan, and nothing but white paint on white paint. Forces you to look everywhere in a desperate attempt to establish order, coherence, and form. No detail is too small in this search. Imagine the relief you feel in finding something to hang onto. Imagine the joy you feel when you realize your powers of visual perception have been expanded. Want to hear the aural counterpart to these paintings? Please contact the composer for performance materials.
