More on the visual language of a song

Although working on a computer isn't my favourite thing in the world, I next found myself experimenting with drawn images and photo edited, black and white shapes. For me, this speaks to the hand-made, imperfect and deeply personal way of creating combined with the impersonal precision of pixelated graphics: a place where the human meets the transcendent (I've made art before in this way in Without A Story and I'm surprised it's made an appearance again). I'm not sure if I'm there yet with the visual language of Sweet Rain but I'm making progress. It could be a film... a digital media work... it could be a monochromatic abstract painting... a drawing on watercolour paper.... a book... or something else entirely. I suspect I won't know what form the final artwork will take for my album until I've taken several songs through the process.
