Island at the Edge of the Sea
A bit of piano-tickling from Glenn Gould never hurt anyone….
I am trying to keep somewhat mum about the narrative content of the Archipelago story, but it’s hard to hide some things if they are in the paintings, which are visible to all.
The third island in this story is the island at the edge of the sea—and this painting depicts the moment after the piece has finished, but while it is still reverberating.
As you can see, our hero, in his guitar-powered boat, is being catapulted into the Sea of Sound, with the help of two Mer-horses and some musical monks. It’s an adventurous-sounding piece of music, but his true adventure begins at this moment.
