Partition Inachevée

“Partition Inachevée” (Incomplete Partition) is a tribute to the artist’s father George Naufal Sawaya. It is inspired by his legacy of musical compositions and recordings of bird songs. The artist writes ’50-year-old tapes, annotated or blank sheets of music, oud strings meticulously kept,  weave together almost a century of music. I play with ephemeral melodies that my eye can listen to.
I transpose.
I paint.
I meditate.
I compose.

I fly elsewhere.’
