Ainulindale IV by Anubis1000 Ainulindale IV by Anubis1000
"And He spoke to them, propounding to themes of music..."
- The Silmarillion

Here Ilúvatar conveys to the Ainur and Maiar the nature of music. Bringing forth into the void, Sound, where before there was nothingness.

Here I have shown Ilúvatar as the spiral galaxy with rays of light streaming forth in hopes to show his thought and his will in conveying to his creations what music is and how to make it.

I have used in the collage, elements such as a bird's wing, an ocean wave crashing the shoreline, musical notes, and sound waves.

You will also find the display of an audio equalizer...all helping to convey the idea of the teaching of what sound is and how to create the harmonies of music.

Wow -- so ingenious! I like the equalizer. It's a good symbol of the increasing musical organization of the universe.
