This piece was created by listening to Jonathan Buck's jazz composition, "Decomposition II." A quote by Buck about his music was then transcribed into braille, which uses the same cells for writing as for music notation. Using that as a pivot point, I then transcribed the quote into music. More details in Art Statement.
