Painted music, a bit’ outlandish
Learning to read means learning to listen and empathy. Educating oneself in images means exploring space, shapes, tones, colors, rhythms… basically, the first steps towards understanding music. This series is the daring bet by an original musician with Carthusia, to accompany the little readers in different paths, where the sonority of words and the power of images will allow them to “listen” to the illustrations and to “watch” the music.
