3# Visual Representation of Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells II – Sentinel

Music plays a huge part in my life, I used to play various instruments and understand and appreciate the quality of a beautifully written and put together piece of music. Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells (all versions) is inspirational, in particular Sentinel (Track 1 – Tubular Bells II).

It is the updated/sequel to his landmark 1973 new age recording, which unknown to me was actually used in the Excorcist. Oldfield’s phenomenal multi-instrumental performance playing guitar, banjo, organ, percussion, mandolin and of course the tubular bells has resonated through history. Then throughout II he cleverly incorporates multi-cultural influences that have been introduced with the new age, using flutes, asian-like string sounds and the whispered foreign words of “Sentinel”.

It is such a wonderfully written piece, I see it as challenge to create a visual respresentation that is just as good!
