It's called "Automatism"

Yes, I just found out. What I have been doing for the last year is Automatism.

Organically. Without question. Against all logic and norms.


Andre Breton, the French Poet who launched the surrealism movement in 1924 defined it as:

‘Pure psychic automatism ... the dictation of thought in the absence of all control exercised by reason and outside all moral or aesthetic concerns’.

Whenever I'd try and explain to someone what it is that I experience when I draw, paint or play the piano, it was always a frantic attempt to articulate just that.

"thank you, but I had nothing to do with it!"

I couldn't really imagine anyone taking me seriously when I said that, but it was the truth.


"I cut out the middle man" is another phrase I had coined over time to be able to expedite the description of the process where by I am not aware of the outcome of the drawing or the next 10 Piano notes to reach for while playing. I too am listening, not engaging just observing with my ear and not looking.


Had I studied Art, Music or Composition, I would have perhaps reasoned with the this concept, having an arsenal of tools to draw from, however this, is not the case.

This all started one year ago.
