I would occasionally find myself dosing off in music theory lessons, my mind would wander off interpreting and distorting information around me. Concentrating was a struggle, my ADHD and dyslexia were probably an influencing factor but from boredom creativity sprouts.
I began to draw the Treble Clef symbol all over the place, animating and humanising this musical notation with hats, bow-ties, canes, hair styles, and so on. This interpretation and expression by which I connected to my music theory classes was the start of Gangooze… connecting in my own terms with what was around me. Breaking a few rules in theory classes led to fulfilling the ultimate objective of art – self expression.
Create an environment to which you can relate to,
rather than abide to.
