Topic: Art and Music
The 19th century concept of synaesthesia attempted to illustrate the connectivity between music and art. It posits that there are possibilities of blending of senses and that sensory perception of one kind could manifest itself as a sensory experience of another. When we listen to different kinds of sounds and music, they evoke different types of sensory experiences which in turn invade our creative processes. This phenomena tend to influence our subconscious personality such that the purest ways to express them is without recognizable imagery. In this research we have tried to analyze relationships between different types of music and installation art of found objects. We found that different music and sounds evoke different sensations which give rise to corresponding installations arts.
