The Oud Of The Year
For this tribute, I wanted to represent motherhood through our senses...
Sight, in choosing warm and bright colours as well as fine carved calligraphy
to translate the warmth and beauty that emanate from a mother.
Touch, through the woods and noble materials chosen to represent the gentleness
of a mother when she embraces her child.
Hearing, in searching for a deep, balanced, and composed sound just like the harmony
and generosity arising from a mother's voice.
Finally, smell, because for this instrument, I selected noble resins with subtle scents, to remind us of the comforting smell of a mother.
