Chip Neville - Music

Chip Neville - Composer Guitarist

I approach music very much as I do visual art. Because I have a fairly diverse set of traditional and electronic performance and compositional skills, I am able to choose musical medium to suit application. Whether the application is film, installation or performance, I am able to accomodate a variety of traditional or electronic approaches.

Frank Zappa once said "Music in a performance, is a type of sculpture. The air in the performance is sculpted into something." I think to myself. Of course, He means it literarily. He is also making a fine example of not just the interconnected language but the basic physics of the arts. All the arts are related by language of description and the physical features they describe. For instance texture, color, line applies in discussion of camera, film & video, dance, music, and painting.
