Logan Square ARTicipation Tour-Chiacgo Artists Month 2.0



"Vibrational Sound Narratives” , artist Alpha Bruton
Exhibiting a series of 12"x 18" acrylic on paper, a four year exploration of various jazz musicians, improvisational Jazz, creative music, electric music, and alternative sound, where I created abstract sketches in a response to their sound stream, and what I was feeling, or seeing during these performances.

Vibrational sound narratives are a very comprehensive system of patterns, or vibrations that teach our bodies at all levels how to have a new experience. They activate a practice similar to Vibra Keys association with sound, shape, and image in the context of emotional response, and unlock visual-spatial intelligence in the artists among us, who think in pictures and images.

Some of the musicians perform at venues in Chicago: Elastic Sound & Visionary Gallery, Chicago Calling Arts Festival, Brown Rice, Umbrella Music Festival at the Chicago Cultural Center, Velvet Lounge, Ancestral Lofts, Heaven Gallery, Empty Bottle, AACM tribute to Fletcher Henderson at Millennium Park, Earnest Dawkins Sunday Afternoon Jam sessions, Nicole Mitchell's tribute to Alice Coltrane, Ways & Means Trio, and Dan & Jon Godston’s Mingus Awareness Project at the Hide Out, just to list a few.

The project is supported in part by the Logan Square Chamber of Arts and the Elastic Arts Foundation, Chicago
