Music Composer Portfolio: The Art of Tom Krumpak

Bamboo tall, blue sky, a painted abstract picture, inside wooden room

This haiku describes Tom’s studio where he paints.  The collaboration between Tom and Audio Music Productions begins with a soundscape by Feri Gutierrez that depicts a day in Tom’s studio.  We hear the passing of time, birds in the trees, Tom working, moving around, and going about his day. The idea is to bring the museum-goer into Tom’s studio by having them hear the soundscape as they enter the exhibit.

As the museum-goer approaches paintings within the exhibit, they hear pieces of music that were dedicated to each work.

Vitti Thitivongse wrote a piece dedicated to a work titled “Sparrow.”  Vitti’s work brings the listener inside the painting.  He puts us in a forest, among sparrows that are near and far.  He captures the calm of the painting with a shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute) melody.

Isaku Kageyama‘s piece, dedicated to “Whisper of the Pink Canoe” is a global conversation in many languages.  The letters in English, Spanish, and Japanese were drawn upon to create a piece that switches seamlessly between the music genres of American Funk, Latin American Salsa, and Japanese folkloric Minyo.

Sergio Torres wrote two pieces that act as extensions of each painting – a very different approach from the previous pieces of music.  His pieces beckon to the listener’s imagination, inviting them to see beyond the canvas.
