Avicii has been honoured with a Google Doodle forward of what would have been his thirty second birthday.
The animation, which you’ll be able to view under, overlays colourful sketches of a younger boy strumming a guitar as a baby, making beats on his laptop computer as a preteen, and DJing a small gathering as a teen.
From there, a pair of palms define the form of a coronary heart and a sketch of the DJ/producer (actual identify Tim Bergling) might be seen getting misplaced within the music whereas touring the world and performing stay for 1000’s of individuals. The minute-long clip is soundtracked by his hit “Wake Me Up” from his 2013 album ‘True’.
It was created forward of his birthday which might have been tomorrow (September 8) and to mark Nationwide Suicide Prevention Week. Bergling took his own life in 2018.
The Google Doodle was created by artists Alyssa Winans, Olivia When, and Sophie Diao.
“The truth is Tim struggled a great deal during the touring part of his adulthood, and I wanted to find a way to both touch on the realities of that experience, while still celebrating and honouring his life in a way that fit the lyrics and tone of the track,” Winans informed Consequence Of Sound.
“I ultimately decided to spend the majority of the video on the aspects of his life he loved, with a few symbolic moments to allude to some of the more emotionally challenging experiences.”
Avicii’s father, Klas Bergling, added: “The Doodle is fantastic, my family and I feel honoured and Tim would have been very proud and love it.”
“It is a friendly and warm story of a young man fulfilling his dream to be a DJ and at the same time telling us that our journey in life is not always easy despite fame and fortune.”
It comes simply months Sweden’s Ericsson Globe was officially renamed in tribute to Avicii.
