From the angel concerts of the Renaissance to the abstract syncopation of Mondrian, from Andy Warhol to Christian Marclay, music reverberates in the history of art. Music for Your Eyes explores everything we love about music: from the wildest impressions of the limitless joy music inspires, to tender depictions of rock musicians leading their lives of quiet meditation, abstinence and chastity; from the documentation of fabulous concerts, to the delicate beauty of composers' precious manuscripts; from crazed expressions of devout fandom, to serene evocations of mind-boggling synesthesia. ~~~ Rob Mintz
"All the arts in common aspire to the condition of music," Walter Pater wrote, indicating the uniquely abstract and immaterial nature of the art of sound. In modern times, that condition of inherent subjectivity has helped liberate the more 'concrete' art forms -- especially visual art. We thus have a trail of artwork inspired by music cutting through the 20th century and into the 21st. As an artist, how do you give form to your response to music? What does music look like to you? How do you balance your observations with your feelings in response to "organized sound" (as Edgard Varèse called music)? Is your work designed to accompany music, reflect it, or embody it? -- Peter Frank
