Geodesic Improv

Playing Shakuhachi-style on my silver flute, I finally realized my dream of creating geodesic flute-sounds. This isn’t quite as spectacular a structure as Buckminister Fuller’s geodesic dome from the Montreal Expo, but definitely of the same design influence. Attached to the light-filled Rubber Factory from the previous post, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to play for even a minute or two in this forgotten space. And this despite the fact that there was a car parked across the street just outside the door with a uniformed driver.

There I go again, risking my life for Art.
