I’ve had the rare privilege of collaborating with a friend and hugely talented artist. Tina Scahill, of Scahill Design, created a stunning painting entitled The Pool and invited me to create some music based on this painting.
I was definitely surprised to be so inspired by a painting, which is entirely my misconception and mistake for assuming that something which is a snapshot in time wouldn’t do so. Instead, the story of the painting, of that pool, leapt out at me. It’s so full of life and movement that the music flowed freely and readily. I can, with hand on my heart, say that this painting has such a fascinating story that the music really did write itself. All I had to do was uncover the notes to tell that story.
So I invite you to glance at this amazing work of art, listen to my music and discover the story of The Pool for yourself:
