RITUAL/TEST was a collaboration with the musician DEREK RUSH created in 2014 for the GATEWAY PROJECT SPACES.  It consisted of three paintings with titles displayed in a dimly lit room.  Each piece had an associated piece of music composed by DEREK RUSH specifically for it based on the title and preliminary sketches.  The music played simultaneously with a 5 second difference between the start time of each track to create a different combination of sounds with each playing.  Viewers were invited to sit in the center of the room with the door shut to experience the sounds and visual work, in what was meant to be a semi-religious/reverential setting.
