    As one of the exhibiting painters for the Art Prostitute show (“Lazy Bones” – August 18) and a participant in the Sorta CD Release party/concert/art circus at the Grenada Theatre on Friday, August 25, I must say it was a surreal experience coming together in seven days.

    I was the guest artist/painter providing the projected visuals for Sorta’s second set and when I had abolutely no inclination as to what I was going to do until the moment hit.

    And I new it would.

    Both Sorta and Shibboleth provided the needed inspiration with their thunderous and liquefied frequencies. Sonic immersion gave way to a series of animated underpaintings that some lucky soul purchased at the end of the night. There were probably at least 20 paintings underneath the final piece that was manifest.

    Dallas should be proud for having such a rich musical and artistic scene – that should be empowered and exposed more than it is today. Can you imagine if our One Dallas Newspaper caught on instead of killing trees so you catch up on your highschool fantasy sports stats? (No slight intended)

    We all should scratch another notch in the cultural bedpost for witnessing something uniquely Dallas created by some of Dallas’ noteworthy local artists and cultural contributors.
