02022020 Beethoven

02022020 Beethoven is an absurdist tongue in cheek comic strip composition about Ghost Beethoven’s 2020 arrangement of the second movement of the second symphony. It is Beethoven Through The Looking Glass in a surreal turned around world of mirror images and spells for expanding and contracting, where all the major triads are turned into minor cadences. Monumental, fierce, mysterious, magic Punk Beethoven, is a surrealist composer who came back to haunt us in the middle of an existential crisis. Beethoven you old joker you! This is a weird tragicomedy of iconic imagery reworked in hyper-colours.
