Hear what you see

From the early years of the twentieth century  the development, first,  of electronic instruments and then of other new ways of making, recording and transmitting sound, caused a rethink of the definition of the word ‘music’.  Such developments led to some composers creating works that could not be adequately communicated through conventional notation.  Various forms of graphic notation were adopted

This image, although it is primarily intended to be a visual abstract, suggests, perhaps, a relationship with graphic notation.  Maybe you can imagine the mood and the qualities of sound the hieroglyphics and symbols suggest.  I think Kandinsky might have been interested!

Dishwasher still life

I was undecided which of these two images to use.  I like both  –  hence, you have two for the price of one!

Abstract 232

This abstract pattern relies heavily on its lighting, its limited palette and, most particularly, on the many, many lines.  I find the lines especially interesting because, despite their number, I can find no two lines that are exactly parallel with each other!  For me, this linear variation produces a sense of movement and vitality –  a sort of chaotic energy.

Abstract 235

 

Although this abstract is in monochrome, its lines and tonal contrasts create an energy and movement that I find pleasing and full of vitality.
