Lyrical Tabs - Art

Lyrical Tabs is a minimalist piece that plays on musical symbols in to create a whimsical, enjoyable piece. The abstracted image of a musical note that would appear in written sheet music is used in this painting. A monochromatic image in black on a spare white background, this painting emulates the color scheme and general appearance of printed sheet music.

The shape of these strange musical notes reflects the sound that each makes upon being played. The graceful curves of one symbol denote the elegant, suspended crescendo of sound that would be heard if this were sung or played on a music instrument. The sharp angles of the other note represent a sharp, staccato sound that ends quite abruptly.
