O B J E C T I V E To choose a piece of music that has meaning to me, and use the lyrics of the song as a basis to experiment with typography and visual layouts that communicate how I feel about it.
S O L U T I O N S In this work, I chose the song Flight of the Bumblebee by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. Originally from a Russian play, this music brings me back to my childhood. It is reminiscent of the sounds I heard from the window as a young child growing up in the music university in China, with people practicing the song on piano. As the song builds from light and airy to deep and intense, the dense rhythm really sounds a lot like the buzz from bumblebee’s wings.
