Content of this workshop:
In this workshop we will listen carefully to a piece of music. You will be given tools to listen to the musical details and to make visual translations of them. After and during listening tot the music, you will be sketching patterns as visual translations of the musical details, you explore the music visually. You choose from the results one or more forms that will be the startingpoint of your painting. During the paintingprocess, the music will be still there for a while. The forms will develop into a balanced painting. In this process we will not work with the musical details rigidly, but let the work also speak for itself: what is the next step that is needed? We work towards an artistic work with plenty of room for experiment.
