These demons are the next two to be depicted from my Abstractium series of artwork.
Here is scene from a structure in Abstractuim known “Boisiterius”. This oddly shaped and giant structure is home to demons that in one way or another relate to the use of sound and music in their behavior. In this structure are many strange rooms,auditoriums,ballrooms, halls, and theaters that all contain an individual array of sounds and music. In here demons emit many forms of music and sound ranging from familiar methods such as vocally or instrumentally, or to strange and highly bizarre methods of emitting sound. Those who become trapped in Boisterius will experience horror,torment,and even ecstasy through the sounds and music of its demons.
Tristesdo y Amor: This demon resembles a couple in each other's embrace. Entwined together in an eternal waltz Tristesdo plays the melodious strings of Amor's spine. A sound laced with beauty and yet drowning deep in melancholia,the music of Tristesdo y Amor transcends beyond the sound of any mortal violin. This demon plays the instrument in the most woeful and beautiful violin symphony ever conceived, accompanying the voice of the demon Akil'ea. To mortal ears this musical piece is so emotionally devastating for who ever hears this will be overwhelmed by its intensity and die. As the notes progress any mortal will be brought to their knees, the vibration of Armor's string's will shake their very core. The brain will be so flooded by deadly endorphins created from the music that the brain will begin to die. With ever lugubrious note blood will pour in such heavy amounts from your tear glands that the pressure will pop out your eyes. In your final moments each stroke from Tristesdo's bow will start to literally tear your heart apart. This death is not fast, it is slow and torturous being severely agonizing as you die from hearing such an emotional composition. Tristesdo cannot and will not stop playing the strings of Amor as each stroke soothes the pain of Amor. If he ever stopped playing he would lose his amor forever.... The origins of this demon are unknown, but it is believe they are a representation of a powerful tragedy between lover's as Tristesdo y Amor is an avatar of true melancholy and the power of raw emotion.
Akil'ea: Basking in instrumental of Tristesdo y Amor the demon Akil'ea accompanies them in this heart-rending symphony. The instrumentals of Tristesdo y Amor give Akil'ea some sort of power or pleasure. As she dances with the duo a strange mouth on her forehead bellows with a captivating and beautiful voice. This voice maybe connected to the feelings and emotion running through her brain being emitted through sound. It is disturbing that a demon such as this can have the voice of an angel. This voice severely strengthens the impact of Trisesdo y Amor's sound. Captivating any mortal rendering them helpless to need to listen and become lost in the music of the symphony which will lead to an agonizing death. As she dances threes metal rings are suspended around her body that follow her every movement. Long stakes attached to the ring pierce in and out of her bleeding body. It is maybe that this pain brings out some sort of dark feeling of ecstasy. Akil'ea never opens her eyes dancing blindly around the room, yet somehow she is still in sync with Tristesdo y Amor. Inside the intricate structure that Akil'ea is attached to is a man who’s arms and legs are chained in the interior, there is even a chain piercing his face. This man bleeds from a large hole in his chest as it looks like he is suffering from the pain and the sound of the symphony. Unlike Tristesdo y Amor the demon Akil'ea is much more difficult to interpret as many of her features are mysterious yet connected to the story of this demon.
