From the Maslanka Archive features media and stories of David’s life and work. Did you work with David? Please consider contributing material.
It’s time for another edition of From the Maslanka Archive. We are actively building the Archive, but it won’t be ready for public viewing for a while. In the meantime, we wanted to show off some great items we’ve already collected.
We also wanted to inspire YOU to help grow the collection. We would love to feature you in an upcoming edition! Simply provide us with photos, video, audio, or stories of your time together and you may find them on the front page.
This week, we are excited to feature pictures from David’s studio as it looked in June 2008. In the following pictures, you can see David playing from the 371 Four-Part Chorales by J.S. Bach, (as was his daily warm-up before composing). You can also see a collection of some of David’s pastels. When David would come to a rough spot in the compositional process, he drew pastels will his left hand. This practice helped David engage his subconscience mind which aided him in composing.
A Very Special Thanks to Stephen K. Steele for providing these images.
