Loren Connors has improvised and composed original guitar music for over four decades. His music embraces the aesthetics of blues, Irish airs, blues-based rock and other genres while letting go of rigid forms. Connors, who names abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko his most important influence, also works with pencil, toner, computer software and other techniques to create evocative prints that arise from the aesthetics of music.
