Light Mandala – A Sound and Light Sculpture

This project was inspired by an installation we did two years earlier, “World Lotus”. Commissioned for the da Vinci Days festival in Corvallis, this time around I created original music for the show, programmed the main lighting effects (others did the lasers and the rope lights which were part of the sculpture itself).

Here’s a video recording of the show:

The music featured here is published on my album, “Moments of Inertia plus Light Mandala”, available from Apple Music and most other outlets.


Light Mandala

A Sound and Light Sculpture, presented during “da Vinci Days” in Corvallis, Oregon, July 18th and 19th, 1997.

The sculpture, erected in Central Park, evolved from a concept originating in Eastern thought – sounds and colors matching the emotional and psychic centers of the human spirit.
