Originally released as a limited-edition audio companion piece for the Corbett vs. Dempsey gallery's Musician - Artist opening in Chicago, December 3, 2004, Eye & Ear features otherwise unavailable tracks by internationally reknowned artists such as Sun Ra, Peter Brötzmann, Han Bennink, Michael Snow, Pee Wee Russell & more, ranging from recordings from 1950 to the present. "It's hardly news that artists and musicians are so often one and the same. At one time, to be a well-rounded person of any cultural persuasion meant to be a practicing musician -- and even since the dawn of the more rigorously specialized modernist era, the disciplines of music and visual artmaking have frequently intersected. Consider that composer Arnold Schönberg was an outstanding and active painter, or that artist Wassily Kandinsky used the term "improvisation" to describe his own paintings. The Musician - Artist group exhibition assembles a wide-ranging assortment of artwork by musician-artists and artist-musicians, both historical and contemporary, exploring the many ways that passage between the visual and the sonic can serve as a creative catalyst." -- John Corbett
