    Has the music anything to be with your photos?

    Today it's a grey day in my city. It's no usually but I like it. I don't see blue sky. It's a cool day. We have 5 or 6 grades. It's perfect looking behind the windows as the rain was falling .......... but this is not at all. I was hearing music that makes me feel a lot. Prokofiev as example with his classic simphony or others more and my mind fly with a lot of ideas for work with phototography. Do you have the same feeling? It's the clasical music for you a way to inspare to take photos?

    You miss the point I think. The OP isn't talking about playing music on an external source that he can physically hear (as can anyone else who is close enough). He's talking about music that comes unbidden into his head (that only he can hear) usually as a reaction to what he sees.

    While this isn't exactly rare, it's also not exactly common. So if you don't hear music when you are photographing, you are probably in the majority.

    So maybe this thread ain't about you. That's not a bad thing. It's just a thing.

    He didn't mean that? OHHHHHHHH
    external source? physically hear? And people nearby would also be able to physically hear an external sound producing machine that he
    God, dude

    Seriously, though
    I think you've missed it.
    Unbidden? really? That's more of a mental issue and if not than it would be quite rare -IMO ..to the point of making a thread about it on apug.org would be known by the poster to be near useless

    This is not some case of some guy seeing numbers as colors this is this guy associating a piece of music/type of with a certain ..condition or whatever
    Rain in this instance
    I listened to this composers music and found it instantaneously "reminiscent of raindrops"

    it's not anything special


    this guy doesn't say he hears music when photographing, either
    He says music "inspires" him to photograph
    but really all I think hes saying is that music invigorates him to do things he enjoys doing

    it does everyone, i think

    it's just energy combined with memory mixed together with favorite pastimes

    I wonder what makes you say this. While I attempt to remove all distractions when I create something, including music. I realize others may need something. If music puts one in the mood to create what is the problem.

    You seem to have problems with people connecting visually to music. I am curious, why so vehement?

    It's Texas Music and Americana that gets me a good day in the darkroom!. However, we lost the radio station that plays that music, and the other closest station is too far away to get. Been searching for a way to stream the station (don't like recorded music, I like to be surprised, "fed" my music) while in the darkroom. So far, nothing has worked out. I haven't had a great day in the darkroom since! But gotta have some music! Tried it once without and it was so EMPTY!

    I think that music and photography must excite similar areas of the brain. I think it shows you have a 'photographers mind'.

    Regarding the brain, Andrew, I think that is a very important point that you make. What I suppose music and photography have in common is that they can bridge the two hemispheres and unite complex analytical thinking with a broader, spatial experience. Both music and photography (and all art) can be purely technical... we all know what that looks/sounds like! But in order to engage deeper emotions, the thought process has to move beyond the technical/analytical part of the brain. Perhaps that is the function of the background music, for me- to remind me that there are single notes played technically and perfectly... and then there are compositions that transcend all of the technicals.
