“Roxbury Rhapsody” as an expression of community + visual music; weaves Roxbury’s many strands of life, culture and people into a single tapestry of glass, metal and color; its many colors of music, historical persons and institutions are symbolically ever-present. The vibratory timbre of music, becomes a palette of enamel colors, evolving into a vibratory composition that stimulates the visual senses; welcoming the “magic” which occurs when heat, metal and silica glass, conjoined through compositional rhythms blossom as “visual music”. "The artistic image is not intended to represent the thing itself, but rather, the reality of the force the thing contains."  [1]
