Wildlife Paintings: Music for wildlife paintings can step in to expand on aspects seen and unseen in relation to the animal figure. Consider the portrait presentation of a tiger’s head. We appreciate the clear presentation of physical details. Sharp whiskers extend from the enormous muzzle like so many white wires. Intricate stripe patterns decorate across a wide, sloping brown and cooly focused, wild eyes. But what is this tiger all about? An active audio track may suggest the incredible speed of a slashing paw, or the sudden leap onto prey. An explicit sound effect, a roar, reminds us of the incredible power and ferocity of the beast.Conceptual Art: Conceptual artPop Art: Pop ArtPhotorealism: Hyperrealism: HyperrealismMinimalism: MinimalismFuturism: FuturismImpressionism: Impressionism
- Abstract Art:
- Expressionist Abstract Art lends itself to presentation with audio that features dissonance, assymetrical forms and experimental sounds. Especially with this particular category of abstract art, where we often lack for recognizable images or familiar patterns, music can suggest a narrative, an emotional response to the visual piece. This is the composer’s take of course, not ours. As likely as not, we won’t quite see the work the same way. But this music for art may nevertheless challenge us into formulating our own meaningful narrative, into exploring our own unique emotional response.
