Music : Movement & Mindset

Music and movement has been matched up for centuries. Art from the past continue to be beautiful remembrance that capture a moment in time, and invoke emotions. In the same way that music over the years have changed the way people respond, the production and style have changed to bolster more eccentric techniques.

This piece describes the story of Mary Magdalene's life and sums it up in this painting. Lucas Van Leyden does a great job of bringing so much realism and recognition of such an honored woman in a single piece of art.
This wedding here has everyone on their feet. Paintings of dancing and jubilee are a common finding in the late 16th century. The characters are dressed in warm clothing as the trees look to be quite barren. The slightly tan grass also suggest that this would be some type of fall festival occuring!
The couples in this picture are dancing to a rustic bagpipe pictured in the lower right. The bagpipe offers a somber yet cheerful tone as its notes bellow out from the pipes. The woman totes her dress to the side as she is dancing happily by her husband in the company of her friends and relatives.
This wonderful art piece is garnished wonderfully with mirrors, gems, and custom flame worked glass bodies. The Mechanical Glass Theatre captures the wedding at Cana wonderfully as people look pleased.
Every intention of the artist was to convey happiness through dance in this epic portrait drawn in France. Renoir carefully draws in expressions of joy in many of the characters here, and some of them happen to be friends of his. By the styles of peoples hats, it would appear that there would be ragtime music playing in the background
Dance like no one is watching, as the Jester strikes a pose in the foreground of this Painting. The Philadelphia Art Museum presents this lovely painting of a night at the Parisian nightclub. Men dressed to the nines with their top hats of black toting women dressed in beautiful dresses in various bright colors.
Dancing isn't always about the rhythm and the emotions, like in this kayapo ritual Dance. Tribal drums and flutes are played as the people dance in a specific pattern. Everyone seems to be dancing in harmony and are joined together as one with many people.
Expressing emotion in a more visual way, Jon Naar takes on the landscape of New York as he uses spray paint on these railcars to reflect the street art of modern day.
Modern day museums like this Korean Art Museum uses a disco ball to better exude a sense of "moving to the beat of the art." The shoe imprints are drawn in to represent steps in a ball room dancing pattern. As an audience in this room, you will almost feel inclined to dance along to the music that is playing.
In more recent years, frequencies are tested and created with various objects to create sounds that are new, unique, and exciting to listen to. Odd ball sounds are more commonly used in more contemporary music genres.
Artists are always on the brink and precipice of finding intricate sound layering techniques, collision noises, and creating sound beds with the most ordinary and obscure objects. Ant Dickinson is about to record what it sounds like when a piano is smashed from a great height.
