The language of sound
And crowned Orchestra music illustration
I drew this illustration from a photograph and article about Li-Wei Qin in Auckland’s Weekend Herald on March 1st, 2014. Li-Wei is a Chinese Australian of world renown with a deep passion for the colour of sound in music.
I got motivation from the positioning in the portrait. As I value music and orchestral sound, this image brought a challenge to me. To concentrate on the source of the instrument’s resonance. This is a wonder of the human experience watching fingers, and a bow stroking strings. The soundbox design plays a major role in how the sound resonates.
I guess as a music lover, this delightful work will find its way to New York or London, maybe even a Paris wall where the story resonates in the spirit of the buyer. This illustration would also grace the wall of a farmer’s Bach in the back blocks of any country district. In the cool of the evening, they may play their favourite piece of orchestral music, calming, contemplating the story in this art piece.
During the process of illustrating this piece, I heard music that raised me from the cares of the world into an image of pleasure.
Music for all
Music is a very powerful and necessary part of our being. We all want to worship something and music is a tool conveying what we worship. Instrumentation and poetry in song express all lamentations, joys, anger, loves and fears known to man. We would be depressingly morbid without it.
