Suggestion Box: Art

by Michael R. Oldham



This album came about with a call for submissions. I reached out to my friends and followers on Instagram/Twitter asking them for works of art that inspire them. I then whittled it down to 5 artworks, adding a 6th myself. It turned into a fun, inspiring, challenging, and meaningful quarantine project that I completed May - July 2020.

Click on each track to read more about each artwork, why it inspires the person who suggested it, and to see a link to a video of me performing it live with the artwork projected picture-in-picture.

Artwork and imagery have always been a key inspiration for me in my compositional process, so I really enjoyed this project. Perhaps in the future I will take on another call for a new "Suggestion Box," and turn this into a series. If you have ideas for a suggestion box theme, or you'd like to participate in a future suggestion box, follow me on Instagram/Twitter: @WhoaItsMichaelO
