The Listening Eye: The Intersection of Art and Music

ID : 8151   
« back to classes page

Generations of composers and visual artists have often occupied the same artistic and intellectual space, and even shared similar language in describing their work.  Line, color, modality, rhythm, motifs, perspective, and imagery ... their expressive and creative goals have often been related, even if the means and methods (time versus space, sound instead of sight, etc.) were not.  Impressionism, abstract expressionism, minimalism, modernism, and other isms exist in both the visual arts and music – often during the same eras. Painters such as Delacroix, Monet, Seurat, Klee, Kandinsky, Picasso, and Mondrian have musical analogues in composers such as Chopin, Liszt, Debussy, Ravel, Schoenberg, and Webern.  Noted pianist and lecturer Michael Boriskin will explore the interaction between tone and visual texture, sound and sight, as he gives new meaning to the notion of the “audio tour.”
