What started as an loose idea in passing conversation has become an interaction between artist, listener and music...

The parallels between music and the visual arts have been documented for centuries. As life informs art, as does music and vice versa. Images and sounds co-habit our psyche often inexplicably woven together. Try to visualize Harrison Ford in the film Bladerunner without hearing the futuristic tones of Vangelis. Listen to Brian Eno’s “Prophecy Theme” … You can see the desert planet Dune too?

A few months ago, during a casual conversation, music producer Blocks let us in on an idea he was playing with. Initially quite a loose concept, the core idea was to reinterpret music through images in an interactive way that connected the artist to the listener as part of a wider collective network.

Fast forward a few months and Blocks has created an open forum to submit expressions. Consider it a scrapbook of images representing personal experiences that connect us to music.

“Its a space for inspirations, visual images etc playing on the 'narratives' theme of music’s personal effect on people. I hope people can go to it and flick through the work like an board of ideas and impressions, and of course there is the option to submit their own work or 'narrative'...” Blocks

You can check it out at http://narrativesmusic.com/ and also contribute your own images…

Maybe you can spot images associated with recent output on Blocks’ own Narratives Imprint?

As the concept grows and in turn so does the library of images, maybe patterns will begin to develop? Themes may become apparent? The project represents intimate reactions to music. Be it an original image or a selected image akin to Marcel Duchamp’s “Fountain”…
