about

"Sandstars" was inspired by Gabriel Orozco's ASTERISMS, on view at the New York Guggenheim through January 13th 2013.

This is the fourth installment of a new song project: Exhibit.

Every Tuesday for 8 weeks I will spend time in a New York City museum. Within one week's time, I will compose and record a song inspired by the visit.

lyrics

SANDSTARS

Lonely can't be all that you see
Used to be something
Now it's all nothing

Alle alle oo

Sea sand stars

Made a paper constellation
Laid out the embers
Sewed the mistakes into my skin
But I can't remember
Where I am meant now to begin

Alle alle oo

Sea sand stars
