  • This project was set as one of my final major
    projects at university whilst studying Illustration.

    The project is an analytical piece comparing and
    contrasting two pieces of music from two different
    bands, one band being Christian influenced whilst
    the other takes an Atheist point of view.

    Though being of different social backgrounds I wanted
    to investigate to see how similar or different these
    bands might be. What captured my interest in these
    bands initially were their musical qualities; both
    sharing influences of the Post Hardcore genre. This
    genre contains aggressive and gritty characteristics
    which I would not have expected from a Christian band
    before this project.

    From my research I then portrayed my interpretation
    of these pieces of music in an illustrative form capturing
    the essence of the over all piece rather than a purely
    literal representation. So rather than necessarily Illustrating
    obvious characteristics, I delved into the heart of the pieces
    picking up on the possibly unheard qualities behind the music,
    and capturing their true beauty and meaning.

    I have not attached my interpretations to this project, as
    well as which band is Christian or Atheist. I wish for the
    viewers to make their own theories about the work
    and the music and to take the time to investigate the
    bands like I have. To hopefully fully understand their
    intent.
