From the sound artist:
Monet depicts the water-lily pond in his garden at Giverny in Normandy, a source of inspiration for the artist in his later years. The flowers and reeds are caught in the gaze of the setting sun, which is reflected in the water along with the branches of trees on the banks.
Monet was in his late sixties when he made this painting and he had developed cataracts. Thinking about the changes in the artist’s vision and how they manifest themselves in the way he has painted this view, I also looked for a different perspective. It struck me that underwater you would see the pond in a similarly blurred way.
I chose Japanese flute’s to convey Monet’s love of his themed garden and a warm textured pad to represent the rich sunlight falling on the pond.
