“Elevation”

The hidden meanings in the artwork

Elevation

As my followers know already, I’m fascinated by the collaboration between the blockchains Ergo and Cardano, and the special cryptographic features that each blockchain can bring to the other one by being fully compatible. The vision I had of all these possibilities blow my mind and keep inspiring me to share it in many ways, including artisic ways like this NFT.

The Ergo x Cardano logo at the center of the torii.

A torii (Japanese: 鳥居, [to.ɾi.i]) is a traditional Japanese gate most commonly found at the entrance of or within a Shinto shrine, where it symbolically marks the transition from the mundane to the sacred.[1]

Birds

Birds bring good news, they rise up and lift us to new horizons. They see further than we do. Some can even hear them.

The music

Composed in two parts, the music is the result of the combination of a first recording session on a concert grand piano. This first sub-layer is an improvisation recorded as it is on the first try.

The Japanese connection

The music is also tinged with a few Japanese tones, referring to the strong affinity between Cardano, Ergo and Japan.
