Together we explore the intersection between music and visual art. The book is part I (released July 15th 2019) which includes paintings, a text and a download code found at the end of the book. The book/album presents the reader/listener with suggestions, thoughts and arguments, both personal and philosophical about visual art and music. I have painted all books by hand which means that every book is unique!
The music is part II and Etienne is playing to 8 different themes that are also interpreted visually by me in the ART.IS.∙ book. Every piece Etienne has recorded can be seen/ heard like a little statue. The music doesn’t have a common musical form and for the most part doesn’t even have a development that you would expect in music. The music is very static. This creates the possibility to look/listen to it more deeply, see/hear it from different angles, walk around it with your ears, and discover different movements, layers, depth, colors, structures and details.
