Painting can possess the same potency as music with its abstraction. We see music and painting as originating from the same root and are integrated, both aimed at capturing inner spirit and conveying intense emotions. It’s possible to visualize music through certain interpretations.
This project is an intriguing experiment in synthesizing melody, rhythm, color, lines, forms, and the pianist’s hands’ motions into a single seamless whole.
The project’s process entails recording the graceful movements of the pianist’s left hand when playing Liszt’s La chasse (French: Hunting) with Fologram. The goal is to translate this recorded motion, including movement speed on various axes, accents, and the palm’s angle, into a ribbon with changing widths, surface orientation, and color. This is achieved using Vanilla Grasshopper and C# programming.
