Musical Calligraphy

“Musical Calligraphy” series,ink on paper, 2015-2016

Musical calligraphy can be understood as a improvised translation of music into artistic script. This “writing” is abstract and has a calligraphic form, resembling Chinese running script. Thus the name “Musical Calligraphy” and writing order – top to bottom and right to left. Unrestrained, rhythmic and emotional, each work is the artist’s interpretation of a particular piece (also named after it).

It is preferable to listen to the particular song while appreciating. The best way to understand the “Musical Calligraphy” is to watch the process of creation :

音乐书法可以理解为一种以书法形式来表达艺术理念的音乐,本质上其实是一种新型的书法,融入音乐的艺术感和画作的灵感,承古而创新。作品标题来自于曲子名字。欣赏作品的时候建议收听白伟所翻译的曲子,最助于理解音乐书法是创作过程的录像:以上的《差不多先生》作品点击这个链接。
