    Roque’s Friday Films (10/23) Watch Now: Front Porch Music Showcase

    Singer/songwriter Leopard Zeppard is the first performer I am featuring in my new music series in which I film a performance on the front porch of their home.

    Leopard sings a meaningful protest song he wrote called “Fearless Love”. We also get to see a glimpse of the hills of middle Tennessee where he lives.

    I hope you enjoy the heartfelt music and picturesque setting in this special showcase.

    Roque’s Friday Films (10/26): Watch “My Life as a Pianist”

    It is time for a new Friday film release! This week’s film is autobiographical and explains the awakening I experienced when I finally made a deeper connection to playing the piano. This was the beginning of my own personal healing and creative journey.

    There are two of my original piano compositions featured in this film as well as lots of scenic cinematography. I filmed my piano where I play all the time. This is a special place where I am often alone with my thoughts. In this film, I open a window into my interior life.

    I hope you enjoy getting a look into who I am as an artist.

    Roque’s Friday Films! Art In Creation: My Gathered Heart

    It’s Friday! Time for a new edition of Roque’s Friday Films!! This week, I deliver the second installment in my “Art In Creation” series. This one is called “My Gathered Heart”.

    In this series, I film the creation of a piece of visual art and layer it with music I recorded that corresponds with the image being drawn.

    This is a way for me to explore the multi-media layers that film makes possible. I also wanted to create a film that incorporates three of my favorite things:

    Music + Visual Art + Film

    After I sketch out the bones of the drawing in pencil, I use a technique I love called stippling (also known as pointillism) in which the image is created using hundreds (or thousands) of dots. This particular drawing harkens to my love of cubism and, along with the music, conveys an image of a heart with its pieces cobbled (or gathered) together after having been broken.

    If you enjoyed this film, here is the first in the series that I released earlier this year called “Sunshine Flower”:
