This is the first of a pattern I began of doing a larger, 4 .x 5', summation of what I'd been doing,
as I felt my interest waning, anticipating a shift. Influenced by Kandinsky and Klee's feelings for music I envisioned this
as a slice out of a symphony, as the title makes clear. Not as an illustration but as an analogy. This hung for while
outside the P.E. Department at NMU. Someone walked by and drove a pencil through it several times, which I've 
repaired. Would that have happened outside the English Department? The Psychology Department?
