From the sound artist:
The dark, brooding colours of this painting interested me. The clouds are black and intrusive, while the single boat floating in the sea feels abandoned. I wanted to convey the turbulent sea and weather but also capture a sense of loneliness. In researching the artist, I discovered that he suffered from bronchitis. To add to the unsettling mood, I decided to introduce this into my piece with coughing. I also magnified the wind.
