The symbols were designed by the artist Sumudu Welaratna, who also did the album art for Madoc and Transmutations.
The meaning of each symbol lies in the lyrics and music of the songs they correspond to, as well as the concept of Granicha overall.
I sent Sumudu the lyrics and music and explained a bit of what everything was about, and she created the symbols in response.
I am excited to work on a new project called LABYRINTH as part of a great team led by Mei Ann Teo. We’re creating an immersive audio/visual/physical experience about memory, sound, image, and audience contribution to the art.
This piece will debut at the Beijing Fringe Festival in September 2014. We are gathering memories thoughts sounds and images to use in this piece from people all over the world.
If you’d like to contribute, please take a couple minutes and answer some or all of the questions here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/THJD8YD
You can also email us images or sounds at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m so glad you liked it! The 1964 film version with Richard Burton is worth checking out. And I definitely recommend trying the “Karla” trilogy which starts with Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Some of the same characters are in that as well.
