The Goldfish Family
The Goldfish Family is based on the melody of the traditional Japanese song Koinobori. Have you ever watched fish move through water? Hearing the smooth performance of the orchestra, you can imagine every gentle bend and curve of the goldfish happily swimming together. The artist used a special ink technique to create the shimmering surface of the water and the swimming fish below. Even the words ripple across the page as the fish play in the water. When children listen to the viola perform the melody during the Musicmap section, they can follow each fish as it glides among the underwater plants.
