Homage to Joan Guinjoan

“Genius is no more than childhood recaptured at will, childhood equipped now with man’s physical means to express itself, and with the analytical mind that enables it to bring order into the sum of experience, involuntarily amassed.”


In January 2019 the composer Joan Guinjoan died. Om magazine paid homage to him by dedicating a magazine number to his beginnings in his town of origin, Riudoms, and I illustrated the cover.

The cover ended up being a triple cover where they represent elements of their childhood in two different ways: graphically in a drawing, and under the musical transcription of their sound:
1. The rocking chair of his mother
2. The bell that was installed during the time when he had the first contact with music
3. A hoe like the one you should use when working as a farmer
