In His Own Words:
“Music is at the center of my artistic life. As a musician I have always been fascinated by the harmony and the physics of sound—in a sense defining music as waveforms, waveforms whose properties and proportions define our scales, from which we write our melodies, in which we weave our emotions and memories into songs.”
“In addition to music as an experience I have been very interested in the theories, methods and language of music—serialism, minimalism, spectralism, indeterminacy, improvisation, tonality/atonality, silence/noise, raga and rhythm—these have always informed the language that I applied to design and ultimately shaped my work.” – Andy Gilmore for Ghostly International (http://ghostly.com/news/2011/8/804-new-art-editions-new-work-by-andy-gilmore)
– Bachelor of Fine Arts, SUNY Empire State College, Saratoga Springs, New York.
