It always interests me to hear or see music and visual art which is labelled ‘obscure’ – the material artists produce that offers no nod to the mainstream or to commercialism but has a powerful personal meaning. It can, by some, be seen as self indulgent but often strikes a chord with others who seek a connection outside the proverbial ‘box’.
In this area of my website, I will let my creative output pander to the periphery of the ‘box’. I’ll probably slip in and out, slide up and down – VYSHKA is a high tower.
‘Black Rice’ is an instrumental inspired by my wife’s marvellous culinary expertise and her penchant for black rice!
