Just so you know what I am thinking about whenever I draw senritsu. Music-fairytales a cruel. they are about death and the loss of the very self (As you see in the case of senritsu.). Of course Music is healing but at the same time its cruel and dark and strong connected with dead. The musicans are always the crippeled ones, the ugly ones, because the parents who had told this fairytales to their children don´t wanted them to become musicans. Musicans were the wandering people and this ones are the ones to mistrust, the ones that are evil, the ones that gives the creeps to all the other edentary people.
You can even go farther and set the musican at the same place as the midaged fool, because there are both wandering people.
