Crossing - A Journey Through Music and Visual Art”  was launched on 19th May, 2017  at the Robert Sammut Hall, Floriana. 

This project aims to bring together two forms of art –  music and visual art, merging together space, form, beauty and colour. The idea is that both music and painting express emotion and ideas, and can work together to create something truly striking. 

The project is made up of twelve compositions capturing mystical, ambient dreamscapes and organic, melodic statements. The soundscapes – developed from different sources of thought, from ambient electronic, Western classical to traditional world music – are created to be textural, compelling, evocative, and meaningful. 

 

The musical score and complimentary paintings revolve around the common theme of Crossing. In short – it is about the crossing of boundaries, whether physical, geographical, intellectual or psychological –  with particular reference to moments in history, in a story, or a cognitive state.
