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!)
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.
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.
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
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.
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?
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 🙄
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.
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.
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
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)
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 :)
