For some time now I’ve been privately consumed with the idea that some musicians are ‘visual thinkers’ who approach and experience music in a mostly visual way. Morton Feldman would be one example of course and there are many others. I won’t go in to detail now about said theory but I will share with you some inventions that beautifully bring the arts of sound and visual, in this case video, together. Musician, artist, and full-time creative mind Ben Gerstein has been experimenting with time lapse videos for some time now. Occasionally Ben will send me a link to something and I always thoroughly enjoy everything he does. Here are a few that really moved me. Be sure to check out more over on youtube.
