The Arts in Service - On Learning To Live And To Die,
Interrelating the Arts, Ecological and Spiritual Understanding

Body of Work in the context of MLitt Fine Arts and Performance
Glasgow School of Art, 2019/20

A statement that should provide a coherent framework is to be found in the menu to the left under 'The Arts in Service | Context'.

A central work I would mention is 'Kata', an instant composition I made during lock down.
https://soundcloud.com/cyril-lamar/kata. It is best to be listened to with headphones or good speakers.
I also wrote and revised some texts during this time. (Improvisation and/as Ecological Practice, ...)
Apart, or better: in addition to that, here is a list on my body of work throughout the MLitt.
