Sebastian Give Zoe the Voice of a Nightingale


A surreal little painting 8" x 10" acrylic on acid free paper. Sebastian Gives Zoe the Voice of a Nightingale is partially inspired by the story of Saint Sebastian miraculously restoring a voice to the mute woman, Zoe, and in part, from an interest in the wax cylinder recording process, 19th century recording technology.

Original painting by Julie Kwiatkowski Schuler. Does not contain the "My Good Babushka" watermark included here for security purposes.

Sebastian Gives Zoe the Voice of a Nightingale



There is a story in The Golden Legend about Saint Sebastian miraculously giving a mute woman, Zoe, her voice back. I've thought about it, and decided to make Sebastian  recording the song of nightingales on a wax cylinder recording to give to Zoe.
I first learned about wax cylinder recording through They Might Be Giants' wax cylinder recording I Can Hear You from the album Factory Showroom.

Here is the first wax cylinder recording I heard. They Might Be Giants "I Can Hear You." When I heard about it I wanted to look for pictures of the process. This picture is loosely based on several of the examples I found of the wax cylinder recording process.
