Heart of Noise Violin


When I started to put this class together, I wanted to find something meaningful to say with the piece I'd be working on as a demonstration. While preparing the class, I came across a quote from the composer George Gershwin, stating that there is "music in the heart of noise." Finding inspiration in unexpected places has been something that I have been considering recently, and this quote spoke to me. 


I began with rough sketches in various sizes to work out the composition in relation to the shape of the object I'm using. Then I went ahead and after prepping my surface, I started lettering the quote on the violin.



Eventually it was completed, and I took the opportunity to snap a couple of photos!
