This might be interesting for musicians and visual artists alike. I came acros this abstract animation for
an improvised musical session by two leaders of the avant-guarde jazz movement, Paul Plimley (piano) and Barry Guy (bass). (Whatch it here)I really enjoyed it and wondered at the same time what I would do for such a music piece. I realized I automatically think in a figurative way, faces, people, recognisable forms. Tilted, skewed and distorted maybe, but not complete abstract. But as it turns out, this guy, Michel Gagné can do both.

  1. I really think that the kind of visual synchronization in the first link (the 'abstract' one) can really do a lot to enhance the experience and understanding of that kind of 'free form' music. Something happens when you lock two senses together, it focuses your attention in ways that engaging one sense alone does not.
