A Short Note on "Symphonic Arrangement"

"Designing of Artistic Visual Soundscape is done (or, 'accomplished') by 

 expressing Word-painting through Pure Aural Aesthetics."

The earliest form of execution of the Research called "Symphonic Arrangement" dates back in 2018, in a Published Musical Album called Numerous Strings, for which Upamanyu was commissioned as the Orchestrator of the Entire Project. This one was a Unique album. Afterwards, Upamanyu has been commissioned on several occasions, while the form of execution mostly involved Fully Recorded / Recorded-cum-live Productions and Musical Concerts, while being purposefully asked / requested to follow the same Model of Creative Research.
