Music is both a mathematical discipline and an artistic discipline.  Frequencies and harmonies are found in multiples or fractions of sound wave oscillations.  Art comes from composing these sound waves or notes into some pattern that is recognized as music.

Description

This work is titled “Minuet in G”.

This work shows a 1:8 scale bronze cast figurine where the girl is playing Beethoven’s Minuet in G. This figure is custom made from solid bronze and my castings are all hot cast using a lost wax process. The music stand is a replica of one made by my great grandfather that I used during my music lessons while studying the violin. And yes, I played Beethoven’s Minuet in G.

This figure is cast in a bronze made from copper and tin known as Ancient bronze. The body, legs, hands and head are cast separately and soldered together. Her hair and violin and bow are cast in a yellow brass. Her skirt is cast from a white bronze alloy that looks like silver.

The music stand was custom made and cast in a silicon bronze known as Everdur. The frame was cut from sheet brass and soldered to a custom copper box frame.

The chair was custom fabricated in wax and then cast from Everdure.

The work is made by hand. The figurine and all accessories are pinned and mounted on a natural granite base.
