Painting (acrylics on wood panel, 14 1/2 x 10 inches) to the soundtrack (disk 4) for the Portal game (“Portal 2: Songs to Test By”). I found the wood panel at Good Will, where I sometimes go to scavange for used canvasses that I can renovate. The panel was scored with a grid (you can see the lines on the painting), which I thought would be interesting. I thought the grid would provide a good texture for the music. Portal is, unsurprisingly, a dark game where players, under surveillance, move from one container to another, trying not to get obliterated.
