In June, avant-garde artist, educator, inventor and musician Marcus Brown released Peinture Concrete. But this danceable, heavily synthesized and jazz-infused album wasn’t made in the traditional sense. The son of an electrical engineer, Brown is a natural tinkerer. His curiosity about how things work coupled with a passion for art and music led him to invent a new process for creating art and soundscapes, down to the altered and amplified tools he uses. Brown dubbed this new medium “electro-sonic painting.”- LISA DALIET OffBeat Magazine
