The harpsichord is an older instrument that has almost disappeared from the music scene. It has no volume since it is a plucking sound. It is somewhat like a harp, as opposed to a hammer that reacts to pressure as in a piano. It is at times considered sublime and at other times considered a frantic background rhythm that is difficult to hear and often ignored. It is very difficult to play. But you might notice that it is missing when it stops all that hard laboring in the background. If it is playing all by itself it soon becomes tedious.
This painting is imagined as a family conversation around the dining table - a visual portrait of lively family chatter. The artist is speaking (represented here as an overall pattern background of small shapes) and getting muffled by the other members of the family. The father delivers his overpowering statements (represented in straight vertical lines). 
One of the children is represented by the white wiggly lines that change direction and subject. The younger brother is indicated by circular shapes representing incessant and repetitive requests. The empty yellowish void on the lower left represents the coincidental and surprising moment when everyone stops talking at the same time. The silence can be louder and more uncomfortable than the incessant chatter.
