I had the idea to create a painting from an instrumental piece of music. I figured it would be a great way to be create something personal and truly subjective.
What I did was basically listen to the piece of music, and sort of just paint what came into my head as the song played. I didn't know what I would actually gain from doing this, but I figured I couldn't lose anything, either.
The piece is by an British Musician - Bonobo. And is entitled "Black Sands"
And I painted this:
The song also strikes me as rather oriental, so the colour schemes and atmosphere became heavily influenced by that.
I feel the song also glows with promise and magic. It seems to create this by lulling into the song very slowly, building, and building, eventually delivering an over-whelming culmination of sounds.
Listen to the song and look at the painting, maybe even let me know what you think about it?
