Green Series (2016) – Synaesthesia Artwork
In 2016, I was working on an ambient music project of improvised pieces. I had been thinking about making music that designed to be listened to whilst walking in nature; thgough forests or countryside and natural landscapes. Perhaps historical sites, like ruined abbeys, or overgrown areas where the occasional remnant of the past is visible.
However it soon became evident that this project – being improvised and somewhat abstract – was reliant on my emotions, and the colour palette in my mind. I wanted to make green music for green spaces. The task at hand was therefore to find sounds that were not only the correct colour in my mind's eye, but that also had the right textures.
This in turn led to the creation of a series of green synaesthetic abstracts – which ultimately became the album artwork, but that also work as a series of pieces in their own right.
I was illustrating the music I was making.
