Dancing Lights

On Thursday April 18, 2013 I participated in an event put on by the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra called "What does Music Look Like, Art created by Music at the Dundas Valley School of Art". At this event local artists created new artworks as the composer Adam Scime composed electroacoustic music. The audience was able to walk amidst the artists and the composer, and even help construct the sounds Adam Scime used in his composition.
Both the composer and the artists had one hour to create their masterpieces. It was a really neat event to take part in. At first I found the music distracting, but as I got into my painting zone; I found that I felt the music more than heard it as I painted. I am really happy with the end result - this painting has been sold.
