II. Tribute to Oskar Fischinger

Symphony in Squares II

Inspired by Oskar Fischinger’s painting "Square Symphony" (1943). I viewed these three artists as using squares in very similar ways. I converted their squares into musical notation and created a three-part work with each movement as a tribute to each of the artists' use of squares. I have paired my original colored pencil drawings with the final MusicArt pieces.
