Blending the Senses With Art and Music

Hello Citizens of the Blogosphere!

Today’s post is part one of a two part series. In this series, I will detail an experiment in which I attempt to incorporate two senses using two art forms.

My inspiration for this experiment can be traced a few years back, when I took my first (and only) art class. In it, I explored various techniques for creating three dimensional art. One of my favorite projects entailed creating a piece of art inspired by a piece of music.

Given that I really enjoyed the project way back when, I thought it would be fun to try it again. This time, on my own terms.

Here’s the methodology for this experiment for those of you who would like to try this at home.

1. Pick a song and listen to it several times.

2. Pick an art medium. (painting, collage, illustration, etc.)

3. While you create, listen to the song and let every aspect of it inspire you.

For example, if you are painting:

  • Let the emotions in the song guide your color palette or allow the tempo to dictate the brush strokes.

4. Once you have a finished piece, reflect and share.

Stay tuned for my next post to see the results of my experiment.

Why not join me in this art experience? Try this project for yourself and share your results with me!

That’s all for now.

  1. That’s interesting Audrey. I draw a lot of inspiration for writing from music. Maybe I’ll try it for my photography too! I am very interested to know what materials you use in your art and the real life size of the pictures.


  2. Thanks for the follow, I really like your style of work! Especially the idea of art and music, which is something I’m enjoying combining at the moment myself 🙂 Art and music are two amazing things to work with.
