Music on Canvas:
With the Album "Portraits" I initiated a research about the links between Visual Arts and Music through Bass Trombone improvisation and sound design.
The perspective of finding an idiomatic link between both appeared while starting composing "Portraits" and I found an endless source of musical inspiration through the spectrum of visual artists and Contemporary Art.
It appeared to me very interesting to try to create a musical imaginative painting representing the work of a visual artist or the visual artist itself.
Here are few examples of this work:
