Things began to change with Naive Melody with the use of circles. Using circles solved a major hang up with what to do with the 8th notes. Now, Winter has taken that step much further with the evolution of the symbol of a musical note. Over the years this art has gone from representing notation in it’s mostly low angle lean to almost a vertical stance. With Winter the shape of a musical note has gone from the oblong to the circle. At first there was a feeling that it made the canvases less professional looking. That attitude changed quickly. It was obvious that the flow of the music was improved, because of the size of these bubble notes. This look fit the direction that the backgrounds and the other musical shapes, like the 8th notes, were heading. The circle is here to stay, but it’s evolution has only begun.
