Drawing with FezayaFirar in Prague

It was great to be able to do some Tagtool drawing at the Cafe Prostoru_ concert on Thursday with Turkish musicians FezayaFirar, but it was very much a last minute decision as we didn’t know whether it would be at all possible to draw at this venue. However when the cafe spotlights were turned off, the white window blinds behind the musicians provided me with an ideal ‘canvas’ for Tagtooling.

Instead of making several drawings I decided to slowly develop and change this initial image in response to FezayaFirar’s experimental electronic music, adding layers of transparent colour, partially fading and adding some figures, then covering this with solid colour and doing more drawing and fading.

Although I had heard FezayaFirar play at the Floating Castle Festival in Slovenia, this was the first time I had an opportunity to draw with them. The pace and texture of their music was great for drawing so this concert was an unexpected pleasure for me! Dima took lots of photos and there was also some video. But now I will post only photos, and put the edited video later in a separate posting.Above is the image overlaid with transparent colour which I then faded out, painted the background black and continued to draw in monochrome…

…then painted out the central section covering it with patches of solid colour…
…and added some dancing figures to end the session.
