Seattle Photographer – Wayne Horvitz – Sound check

I photographed Wayne Horvitz during a sound check before his performance at the 2006 Earshot Jazz Festival at the Triple Door. He was laying with the Gravitas Quartet. A beautiful group. What I really like about this photograph is the backlight making almost a complete silhouette. It is really nice to have access to different angles during a soundcheck instead of shooting from the audience. I am going to add this to my editorial website splash page. I like the feeling of it. Maybe it is too quiet?

  1. Great shot! Out of most of your front page, this one really stopped me. It’s also nice how the sheet music worked as a reflector for a nice fill on his face. Perfect mood.

  2. That’s quite beautiful, nice to see the quiet side of music (I know that sounds daft!)
