Music and visual art are languages that touch our innate aesthetic.

So many feelings and concepts are shared by these arts; composition, motif, balance, harmony, discord, tone, key, movement, rhythm, rest, tension, foreground, background, depth….

But how to…

  • visually represent music through painting and sculpture?
  • capture the sound space, tonality, rhythm, and feel of music visually?
  • compose visual works that evoke the same emotive responses as music?
  • represent a particular piece or style of music?
  • paint the voice of Miles Davis’ muted horn, a minor key, a symphony, the timbre of Chet Baker’s quavering voice, or the song Back To Black by Amy Winehouse?

That is my challenge…
