Paul Giallorenzo - Coda: like a river

from by Homeroom



Paul and Cynthia explored the synergies in their composition process to build both a musical and visual work of art. Paul spoke in visual terms as he described his process: he began with a sound field, then layered instruments and sounds like droplets of water coalescing towards a unifying flow of sound. The musicians came in and out of the composition concluding with everyone coming together like a coda - a river on a map. Cynthia’s work represents this lovely metaphor, as she layered expressive line, shape and color, ending with the key that brings the work together.
