“Saint Cecilia in Majesty” is an absurdist deconstruction of medieval and renaissance depictions of Saint Cecilia, the patroness of musicians. A traditional memento mori skull signifying her martyrdom is overlaid with blooming roses, symbolizing both her virtue and incorruptibility. Underneath the imagery is the densely stacked droning sound of her attributes, the organ, violins, and flutes. Every aspect of the piece is designed to invoke an ethereal trance and spiritual experience in the spectator.
