Visual Culture: At Home with Trinidad’s Master Artist, LeRoy Clarke

August 1, 2015


Music can play all day and all night. With music, my space is filled, where before it was empty of the sound of your voice. Just before you came in, I was floating. I put that iPod in my ear, and listen to some of the best music. My hands lift into the air, floating on wind, decoding what I hear. There is an ad on BBC where a young boy describes an experience and his voice crescendos as he tried to speak, but now it isnโ€™t the music coming from somewhere else but the strings in his emotion. His own emotion became a harp.
