Droplets by Lila Ravelle
Inspired by: 16 & 20 by Abbas Akhavan
I was inspired to create a musical representation of Abbas Akhavan’s painting process - I imagined the descending sine-wave and vocal melodies to represent streams of ink slowly dripping down the canvas, growing in density over time, and eventually creating a deep grey pool near the bottom of the image. I enjoyed creating with a similar freedom described by Akhavan - I recorded some sounds, but ultimately let the instrument (synthesizer and effects pedals) decide where it wanted to go while gently guiding it along the way.
This work inspired Deep Dive In Green by LianM (Nimbos)
