About Marcus Vincent
For the most part, when one listens to fine instrumental music one does not attempt to assign a material subject to the sequence of sounds. Rather, it is the nuances of tone, rhythm, harmony or dissonance, etc. that transport the listener through a series of emotionally suggestive states. (An exception to this, perhaps, is program music that begins with a premise in the material world or that of literature, and expands upon that theme in a like manner sonically).
As with these works in sound that use various components to create an overall effect, these visual works of my making stand as somewhat of an association with that process. That is, in intuitive employment of visual forms and harmonic textures, a semblance of a whole experience is attempted. Each color, each subtle or not so subtle gesture plays its role in conceiving the whole. Each movement carefully positioned in its context of other dominant and subdominant themes.

Collaborated with faculty and Contemporary Dance Ensemble students from UVU Dance department and Art & Visual Communications in a project focusing on water as ritual, environmental concern, and visual motif. Beginning with a retreat to the Capitol Reef Field Station, I worked with Angela Banchero-Kelleher (UVU Dance), Joel Bradford (UVU Science – cultural anthropologist), and Linda C. Smith (Repertory Dance Theater, SLC) in the exploration of this subject from the vantage point of these various disciplines. I then designed and constructed with the aid of AVC students a sculpture that became an integral set piece of the dance performance. The work is now being submitted for possible inclusion in regional and national dance competitions. 2010 – 2013. Research paper presented in Germany, 2011.
