“Elle + Moi” is a track by the musical group “Cicada” from their self-titled 2006 album. This song is the inspiration for this piece. It is soft, feminine, intimate and so very French. There are light synth and keyboard “droplets” through the song and so many other sounds, like the lyrics & the baseline, provide a constant flowing penetration throughout the song. I have tried to parallel these sounds in this artwork. The subtle gold streams throughout the piece give a little extra shine and drama. Have a listen to the song when you have a chance and hopefully you can experience this art balanced with music.
