Music That Inspires Us V2

Hello All,

It's been a year since I posted my music inspiration posts. As a musician, I always love mixing my love for music and love for art. Do you have a piece of art that was inspired directly from a particular song? Please post your work and the song that inspired it (if that's still allowed here?). Hopefully, we'll be introduced to some new music (Note: I was surprised by how many new songs I was introduced to here on FAA!)

so...no more DJs around ??...how about "return to innocence":


"Don't care what people say
Just follow your own way
Don't give up and use the chance
To return to innocence..."

Hmmm...last time I did this thread there were so many pieces of artwork here with the music that inspired it. Thanks Seruni. That's what I was looking for. I'm always listening to music when I do my art. I think they go hand in hand.

Thanks for commenting Tibor...any artwork to go with the music? :)

When I'm creating my Acrylic Fluid Paintings I often listen to some laid-back type of music. I remember that I was enjoying a Dire Straits playlist while doing this one:

"last time I did this thread there were so many pieces of artwork here with the music that inspired it"..indeed...

maybe the latest recommendations also play some role...some say music in a visual art gallery is distracting and need to be avoided...

Electric Guitar Art

My Dad had a red electric guitar. He kept it out in the garage and played it at night after work. Mostly he "fiddled", but he did know one full song. Deep Purple's "Smoke on The Water"....lol It rings in my head whenever I see a red electric guitar...this piece was a tribute to him.

The calmness of Buchanan's intro ...incredible vibrato bending of the strings, sets the stage for the most incredible guitar runs that start at 2:39.

Wonderful cross. I can hear the correlation, Carmen. Sharon, I play guitar as well as piano (my main instrument of choice) Beautiful guitar image.

Tibor....I hear you. I suppose that may be true for some. I think they can enhance one another. That said, I can see the value of quiet contemplation as well. Perhaps times are changing :(

They enhance one another...at least used to be a time when music videos were considered an art...nowadays I dunno...

Probably not these days, neither is a lot of the music - or I should say, I have to look through more to find the keepers (in my opinion anyway). Of course, I tend to gravitate towards either syncopated or rhythmically forward music and anything jazz, jazz fusion in its various forms. Not to say I don't like other forms of music as well. As with my musical tastes, I tend to favor more abstract work. That said - I have the utmost respect for other styles when done well, like most here on FAA :) Like this one:

Lovely image Tibor! When I saw this I thought of this song by Miles Davis

Matthias,

Forgot to add you into my earlier comment. It's funny but I can totally see how you were inspired the way you were listening to DS. Kudos.

Hello Ken, hello everyone!

Headphones are always on my ears as I create. As I review the photos, as I decide whether to artistically refine them. If I decide to artistically refine them, then it suits me to raise the music to the strongest. All the plaster from the walls would fall off so I decided it would be smarter to spoil my hearing ;-) Shiller combined with Enigma works wonders for me. At the moment, my work is at rest here, so not much can be seen, but I still create and keep my Schiller/Enigmatic works in a folder for the near future, for here or elsewhere. I would single out this photo that was created after a morning dose of energy-charged music.

Davorka,

Nice to meet you and your work! Look ike you, music is always on, since for me I listen to a lot of jazz, who knows how that affects my work. Definitely frenetic (especially fusion), abstract, colorful?

 

Ken Walker

So what were you listening to when you did this?

A Place To Be Seen. Sorry tried to post it from my phone but it wouldn't work... Not sure why.

"Footloose And Fancy Free" by Davorka Gredicak / "Once upon a time" by Schiller ;-)

I didn't quite get you, what about "A Place To Be Seen"?

Ken, nice to meet you too. Your work never gave me a clue that you like listening to Jazz.

 

Ken Walker

Well, I do listen to some rockin jazz fusion.

I was wondering what you were listening to when you created this?

I liked this piece. Also, yikes, it reminded me of an ex. She was brunette, but this is pretty much her in a nutshell. She was a former model with very much attitude, especially when she dolled up for her agent. Too much for me to handle, but I digress...LOL Artists and their issue I guess 🙄

 

Tibor Tivadar Kui

well...relating to artists and jazz..


"...Where I am
I will stand alone
I don't need the money
I don't want for much
These two hands
Never will they mourn
I'd rather you not love me
Before you want too much..."

One of the definitions of the word "strife" is to clash. The title is just fun.

David, where ya been man. AC/DC! Love it. That's what I'm talking about. Thanks for sharing. While my heart is always rooted in Jazz, I did grow up in the eighties listening to AC/DC, Def Leppard, Van Halen, Scorpions, Motley Crue, etc. So let's rock on together. BTW, love the drums.

Tibor, interesting video. Like the feel of it. Thanks.

Just a side note..I always thought I cannot like jazz. Until I've listened first time Caro Emerald (Caroline Esmeralda van der Leeuw.)

 

Ken Walker

I like that one. Different style, but definitely jazz connections. Reminds of something I would hear on Eurovision. I'll put that one on my rotation. Glad I started this. Exactly what I meant - I get to be exposed to music I would probably have never heard on my own. Thanks again TIBOR.

So now, create some art inspired by this song!

Big yes to Pat Metheny - and his longtime collaborator, the late Lyle Mays.

Jim, yes so sad. I got to see the group for the THE WAY UP tour. To play one song that is over 60 minutes long with no breaks. Incredible. It's sad that we will never get to hear them together again. :(

My favorite all time PMG song and one that would not happen without Lyle.

Ken! I'm glad you liked this piece. I liked him too, the moment I saw him. I’m still looking for “her” artist. I am only credited with refreshing the colors in my photo because the graphite was faded colors due to the weather. I'm glad I saved this work. She won't be there any time soon. More in this post if you are interested maybe https://fineartamerica.com/blogs/a-game-of-seduction-by-davorka-gredicak.html

UPDATE!
And yes! This doll looks only at the one who hangs her on his wall :-)

When I finished this painting, Uphill Climb, it reminded me of the Byrds' version of Dylan's You Ain't Going Nowhere. Alternate title is No Matter How Steep (These things don't always work, so if you want to here the song, copy and paste the URL)

The music showed up in my mind after Six Women was completed. Reminding me of the medieval wheel of fate, O Fortuna from Carmina Burana.

Very bright. Great connect. FYI: You can choose the option to embed in Youtube so that the video can place right within the post.

Thanks for sharing this.

I play piano and love music and enjoy taking photos, so I thought I'd share a Father's Day video I made a few years ago, my dad likes running so I used photos of trails around the Grand Rapids, Michigan area and played songs related to "going the distance".
I'd like to do more of this kind of thing and get better at it (hopefully I've gotten better since then) but I've just been too busy :)
