Sonoluminescence invites the developing colors and rhythms of musicWitness® visual response inside the close physical circle of their sonic creativity. Since our tour together a year ago documented here, the Trio members continue to offer encouragement to graphic manifestations of sound vibrations as well as to everyone’s deepening practice of creative sound exploration. GigSpace is an ideal host to present an artist’s visual testimony of living music.  It is a thrill to be invited to share this continuing inspiration.

Jeff Schlanger is a New York City native, a graduate of Music & Art High School and a ceramic art student of Maija Grotell at Cranbrook. Throughout his long and varied career, he has created public art projects on three interrelated subjects: Peace, War, and Music. He frequently collaborates with musicians in live painting performances: a process that he refers to as musicWitness®.

musicWitness® paintings and sculptures have been part of all 20 annual Vision Festivals held each spring in New York City, resulting in a Lifetime Recognition award from the Vision Festival in 2014. In addition, musicWitness® exhibitions have been held at the Academy of the Arts Berlin, Hunterdon New Jersey Art Museum, Webster University-St. Louis, and at El Bohio, the Improvisors Collective, the Learning Alliance, Abrons Arts Center and the Orensanz Art Center on New York’s Lower East Side. A 40 x 30-foot outdoor mural of Bob Stewart’s Tuba solo Steal Away was installed opposite the public Library in New Rochelle, NY 2008-2014.

A comprehensive musicWitness® painting and sculpture installation was presented in New York at the CUE Art Foundation in 2005. In addition, musicWitness® was a performance painter at InterPlay!Berlin 2006, at the Tampere, Finland Jazz Happening 2000—2003, 2006 & 2012, at Sons d’hiver in Paris 2004, AIMToronto in 2007 and 2010 and at the Guelph Jazz Festival in 2013.

Jeff’s artistry has been featured on the front covers of recordings by many leading musicians in the fields of jazz and creative improvised music, including: World Saxophone Quartet, Billy Bang Sextet, Muhal Richard Abrams & Roscoe Mitchell, Charles Gayle, William Parker, Julius Hemphill, Sonoluminescence Trio, and many others.

Jeff Schlanger lives and creates in New Rochelle, New York.

I paint in acrylics and in each composition I try to disorient the viewer just a little, or to beg a question. I do this by using detail, accentuating light and dark, moving the focus to the edge of the canvas or by hinting at what’s not in the picture. I largely work on themes dictated by art class, such as landscapes, architecture or flowers but sometimes I will try something different such as people or animals. I’m excited to try painting food! Regardless of the subject, I always hope to leave the viewer with a touch of mystery or to hint at what’s not seen. I hope you enjoy my paintings!
