Now in his seventh year at Sonic Bloom, Michael’s live art is a field guide to the invisible, electrical winged spirits that crash into being through a dancing crowd. Executed freehand with paint markers and informed by his years as a scientific illustrator, each work emerges organically from the throb of house and audience to form closed-eye tessellations and luminous fossils, verdant and exultant imagery written in the natural language of dreams.
