Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

The 5th work in my "Tomioka" series this painting takes a slightly different direction on from the previous 4 works.
There are 2 reasons behind the title... firstly as I worked on the trees and they became much more defined than my normal technique I thought they looked like sound waves. Ridges of sound, and I began thinking about whether I could take a real scene and transcribe that into an actual visual representation of the sound wave, and in reverse could my picture be turned into a sound?

The second reason for the title is this picture is something of a classic Scottish scene. The towering mountains and forests. This is my land. (But sadly the high percentage of Scottish land is owned by about 8 people) So its not my land. And this land is powerful, it resonates feelings and sound and ideas. In a way its music itself. And you dance to music.
So as the viewer looks upon this painting, as someone looks upon this place for real, it demands you to dance in celebration of it.
