One again, I participated to a contest on Talenthouse. This time, it was about designing a visual for the launch of the music festival Secret Solstice, near Reykjavik in Iceland. If you like my illustration, you have 5 days to vote starting by now :)

And below, here is my explanation for the picture. I hope you enjoy ! :)
"Combining Iceland and music... What a perfect challenge. How to even translate all the feelings that both inspire into one single image ?
I chose one path : rhythm.
As a reference to synchromism at first, concentric circles are embrassing the landscape, symbolizing then musical waves but also waves onto water -which is the main element here- and any living beat. They create the substance of what's being demonstrated.
Iceland landscapes are full of rhythms... The echoes of our steps onto the rocky ground or muffled into the smooth grass, the deep rumbling of volcanoes or the clearer one of geysers, as well as the relaxing tempo or the thundering sound of waterfalls...
Music is obviously full of rhythms... It's in its essence...
And eventually, when facing beautiful and inspiring wide spaces, while listening to beautiful and inspiring melodies, you will find out a new rhythm : the one of your heartbeats."
