week 47 image

Week 47. This week's music seemed to me, to be a prayer or invocation, so I tried to play it as honestly as I could. I played the melody on pizzicato double bass (with no trickery this time) and without vibrato so that it felt more direct. Although it is a very simple piece, I had a lot of trouble playing and recording it. One of the things that helped me get somewhere, was to think of Eberhard Weber and his music.

I intended to make the accompanying image just as simple and direct as the music; it came out complex and complicated. I used gold and silver leaf (a very welcome gift from Matt and Katy) on a coloured ink ground. Then some acrylic paint and more ink. The image measures  28 x 20 inches.
