Happy International Artists Day! (Why does it have to be “International”? Why not just Artists Day?) Take a minute to admire a piece of art, or even better, to make a piece of art.
And for my fellow music producers, here’s an idea: Choose a famous piece of art and let it inspire you. What’s the mood of the artwork? Can you match that mood with your music? And something even more fun: Can you create music that contrasts the mood of the artwork?
For example, I’m going to use Georges Seurat’s A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, but I’m going to try adding something haunting or spooky to see if I can change the whole story of the painting.
