What's the story behind Marvellous Music?
Painting and music also have a common language. Both talk of variety, rhythm, dialogue, unity and so on. And they share similar principles – both create “a composition”: the musician a composition of beats, notes and tones; the visual artist, a composition of lines, shapes and colours. In music, rhythm is something that you can tap your feet to. But painters also use rhythm. With it, they can make your eyes dance from one point in their work to another.
