Byron Bird Orchestration

Piece description from the artist

Byron Bird Orchestration is an abstract expression that can be considered a synesthetic painting, where one can “hear” color, or “see” music. Here the magical music of natural wildlife is captured. In Byron Bay, Australia my husband and I sat and listened to the most amazing sounds in a forest by the beach. We couldn’t see any animals, but every moment was filled with layers of many kinds of birds, insects, a native “cuckaburrow”, and a mysterious low-pitched humming vibration. We both sketched the sounds together, letting our pencils echo the unique sounds we heard as they happened. Then I elaborated it into a detailed drawing and lastly this painting.
