Across the Universe by Velvet--Glove Across the Universe by Velvet--Glove
:iconfractaldreams: FractalDreams Music Interpretation Contest entry. July 2008.
Full size view is recommended.

Update, July 12th:
:trophy: I'm delighted to say that this image won first place in the contest! :D

I chose to interpret the song Across the Universe by the Beatles. The main structure represents the earthbound perspective of the singer, the hint of 60's style "flower-power" in the corner his emotions and love. These feelings and thoughts are emanating as waves into the dark, wide expanse of the universe, filled with a million suns and stars. The single bright star in the corner represents the culmination of the song, a point of light where earthly cares are shed and everything becomes One: the spiritual state of Nirvana.
I added the musical notation, with the first two bars of the song, emanating and stretching out into the farthest reaches of space because I remembered reading about NASA beaming this song out into space earlier this year and it seemed so apt: Link

"Across The Universe" - by The Beatles - from the album "Let It Be" - 1968

Now that is one interesting fractal-employing artwork. And all the better that it doesn't follow the usual boredom and infinite repetetivity that is included within most of fractal-related art. Bravo! :clap:

Gorgeous job! It has a very strong musical feel to it, very fluid. :) Reminds me more of a classical song than the Beatles--although it does fit the song very nicely!

listening to it for the first time ever....
