In 2013, I illustrated my perception of music in a series of paintings. To do this, I used the track »Tommy’s Theme« by dutch producer group Noisia and divided it into five parts.
For each part, I identified different sets of instruments that stood out to me and assigned to each set a fitting technique of drawing or painting, like crayons or acrylics.
Then I took photographs of myself, dancing as I would usually do. After that I tried to express my perception in the chosen technique by listening to the assigned sets of instruments part by part, roughly capturing the dancing pose I had rendered out of the photographs.
I scanned all of the paintings and layered them on top of one another to visualize my perception of the whole.
The final work was presented as a book that can be seen on this and the following pages.
