I am also the author of three plays, “Rise/Reconcile”, “We’ve All Cried on the A Train” (which will be seen in New York City this summer) and “Goodnight, Mr. Bluebird”. My background is mostly in theater and I teach performance art part-time. I’m also an avid photographer, biker, and cook.

zha jsbach 01 358x400 Bach and Modern Design Have you ever seen the Disney movie Fantasia? Actually I wouldn’t even call it a movie, but rather a musical animation experience. If you haven’t I’ll let you in on a little secret of my childhood: it was awesome. It’s all of the staples of the classical music cannon set to trippy animation experiences. If one of those were to come to life I would imagine it would look something like what happened this summer in Manchester, England when Zaha Hadid Architects created a brand new chamber music hall inside the Manchester Art Gallery for a limited performance of the solo works of Johann Sebastian Bach by a gaggle of internationally acclaimed musicians.  [ Continue Reading ]

For this year’s “Festival of World Culture” Mueller took over the East Pier for his “Ice Age” installation. For five days Mueller and five assistants painted from sunrise to sunset using anamorphic technique to transform the pavement into one giant optical illusion. If you haven’t seen the body of his work yet do yourself a favor and check him out- it’s absolutely mind boggling how realistic his canvases look. See more Edgar’s work after the continuation…
