So, after years of validating art as communication in papers, case studies, and research, I'm now more interested in validating art by using it as communication. For each album on my list, I chose a song and "responded" to it artistically, as art therapists would say, from a few seconds to a few minutes. After seeing Cloud Cult last week, I was reminded just how harmonious music and visual art can be when created simultaneously. Must we always review our favorite music with words? Communication, my friends, comes in many forms. Here's mine:
...hands, art, colors, music, smears, beats, water, lines...
1. Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti- Before Today
4. The Walkmen- Lisbon
5. The Radio Dept- Clinging to a Scheme
7. Caribou- Swim
10. Toro y Moi- Causers of This
