Like any art, the music is a form of language, a means of communicating. It forms integral part of our life. It is perhaps the artistic creation which one discovers and which one receives in first: an escapade caught with the flight, the lullaby which a mother sings with her young child.

 

The treble clef located at the beginning of range is the symbol which sets the tone. It is thus a key which opens the door of this art and this language accessible to all. It is also a visual symbol like the notes and the partition of music. The notes, mysterious signs, write the melody in the manner of stained glass which assembles the pieces of glass. It tends to create a representation through which each one will be able to feel an emotion.

 

Lead could be the range, since it holds the pieces of glass of various matters comparable with the notes. My treble clef which occupies most of the stained glass symbolizes the door which one opens and who gives access to this Article I chose transparent glasses or with matter to approach the crystalline character, volatile of the music. This coloured key wants to be more ludic, because the access to works of art must be facilitated.

 

The music is not a reserved domain with an elite, but a significant language which touches us and which each one can apprehend, without having to control the complex harmony of it. It offers another vision of the world and of creation. It makes us free and links us in a universal language. The treble clef is thus the key which releases and which invites us to the travel. The travel form they not youth don't one does say?

 

They make us discover unknown grounds and lead us to question us, to break the barriers of our preconceived ideas.
