Sound Painting by Helen Davey


Musician Helen Davey, Switzerland. Helen originates from Australia, but makes her home now outside of Zurich. Her newest song, Waterpath to the Ocean, celebrates to mood of the river in a pastel work that I have done.

Helen Davey writes abstract and lyrical sound paintings. They are pieces responsive to another form of art, such as a painting. In this instance, Helen has created the water as sound, in it's progress from the river's source, to the ocean. Her inspiration is my pastel work, The Rain, the Light, and The River.

Here are 2 links for Helen's tracks.

It was such a pleasure to sound-paint in response to your beautiful art, Casey. Thanks for trusting me with your work.

Katherine; so glad you enjoyed it.

PS Hey Casey, here's the correct link to bandcamp - it's still not showing properly in the body of the blog.
Cheers, Helen

Okay - that should work, now. Some links just have minds of their own.
