Structured in part after the last three movements of John Coltrane’s Meditation—“Love,” “Consequence,” and “Serenity”—Double Trio stretches Nathaniel Mackey’s explorations and improvisations of free jazz into the unprecedented poetic territory.

In order to tease out the agile qualities of jazz, these action/emotion-charged visuals are designed by giving each figure depth and rhythm. The titles are set in the margins to further anchor the whole series, which presents more room for the dynamic figures to build up in the center.
