State-of-the-Art Wine Cellar

As an architectural photographer I get to photograph some pretty amazing places! Theses are from a recent photoshoot at Windsor.

A unique amenity at Windsor is our state-of-the-art wine cellar. Windsor worked with international consulting firm @winetrendsinc to conceptualize and develop the impressive climate-controlled facility.

Housing the impressive wine collections of the Windsor Wine Association membership, the 2,000-square-foot facility has the storage capacity for over 40,000 bottles, plus an additional 15,000 if case stacking is used on floor space.

Members indulge in delightful wine tastings and exquisite vintner wine dinners throughout the year in the facility’s elegant tasting room and Club dining venues.

Art + Music featured at Gallery Veritas

I’m grateful for everyone who came out to the opening at Gallery Veritas and Art Library in downtown Vero Beach. I make art because I have to, there’s an idea I want to see or hear, or something I’m curious about that I have to manifest. When people respond to my work by sharing their emotional responses it adds another dimension to my creative practice. With gratitude 🙏

Treasure Coast Creates Exhibition Closing Soon

If you haven’t been to the Vero Beach Museum of Art to see the current exhibition Treasure Coast Creates I highly recommend you do so before it closes on September 3, 2023. Think of it as an opportunity for a burst of inspiration before summer winds down.

The exhibition features artwork from 137 artists residing in Indian River, St. Lucie and Martin counties. The quality of work and range of expression is fantastic! Juror Ellen E. Roberts, formally of the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, and the VBMA museum staff did an amazing job curating and installing the work into a multi-themed yet cohesive exhibition. You won’t be disappointed!

I’m honored to have new work from my series Standing on the Shore of the Cosmic Ocean featured as part of this exhibition.

Several of my coaching clients and students are also featured in this exhibition. I’m very proud of them and encourage you to check out their work. They include Susan B. Hale, Jim Cohoe, Matt Erpenbeck, Gregory McIntosh and Lynne Hollingsworth. Here’s a link to my previous post featuring some of their work.

Treasure Coast Creates will be on view at the Vero Beach Museum of Art from May 20 – September 3, 2023.

How I Create Generative Ambient Music

I was recently interviewed by Tim Cole from Intermorphic Generative Music systems about how I use their generative music software Wotja to create infinitely generating ambient music to enhance meditation, creativity, relaxation and well-being. Tim and his brother Pete have pioneered generative music software since the 1990’s! I’m honored to be in conversation with them.

I discovered Wotja in 2017 while looking for ways to create music to go with images from my series A Glimpse of Infinity. That sent me on a deeply rewarding exploration of sound synthesis, effects and creating infinitely generating music.

You can read the interview here https://wotja.com/news/blog/230530-Wotja-Artist-Perspective-Aric-Attas.html or by clicking on the image below.

If you’d like some to experience some expansive ambient music to inspire creativity, relaxation, meditation and a sense of well-being visit my Bandcamp artist page for 3 free listens/track before being asked to purchase. Unlike other platforms, Bandcamp sends the majority of their revenue to the artists creating the music. It’s also a great place to discover new music and connect with other musicians and fans.

My music page has descriptions of each of my albums and direct links. You can also find my ambient music on your favorite steaming service by searching my name.

I’d love to hear how my music effects you. Does it help you focus? Do you feel more creative when listening? Does it help relieve stress? Do you use it to improve your meditation or yoga practice? Maybe it helps you sleep?

Please follow me on Bandcamp and leave your feedback. I make music because there’s something I want to hear or a mood I want to create. I’m always curious to hear how others experience it and find your feedback inspiring.

My music is also available for download on all streaming platforms including Apple Music, Spotify and Tidal.
