Donald Swearingen

Interdisciplinary

Though music has always been my most passionate interest, I’ve never been able to confine myself to the practice of a single art. So I’ve been fortunate to have had access to teachers, ideas, and influences from multiple disciplines in the arts and sciences, that together have informed and continue to guide the direction of my activities.

The world often seems to insist that we choose one thing or another, but there need be no contradiction in embracing the unity of all one’s perspectives, and a commitment to follow the paths and connections they reveal, with curiosity and determination. I offer here a sampling of a few of the results that have emerged from my engagement with this undertaking.
