    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?

    No, but I am listening to "California Dreaming" a lot now.

    For me it's a mix of Classical and American Jazz from before around 1950. I don't know why. But sometimes when I'm working a scene setting up my view camera, looking at the scene upside down and backwards on the ground glass (but seeing it right side up) and working the controls by feel, I do hear music. Everything from J. S. Bach to Duke Ellington. A fair amount of Mozart and Haydn. I seem to have a gap between Beethoven in classical and Fletcher Henderson in jazz (about a 40-50 year gap). Again, don't know why.

    But I do know that when I go revisit a scene to make another photograph, I hear the same music. It's like they are associated somehow in my brain. Makes me think there might be an electro-chemical reason for hearing music while I'm lost in photography.

    I was interested enough in this that I actually exchanged some letters with Oliver Sacks (neurologist and author of a number of books including Musicophilia which I highly recommend to anyone interested in how humans deal with music). He told me that it's not unusual but is somewhat rare, and that he doesn't think it's a form of synesthesia. Which sort of disappointed me.

    Yes, music has a great deal to do with my photography. I simply cannot separate the two; I hear music when I see, and I see when I hear music, and my internal radio is pretty much always on high volume. Anyway, my musings on this topic may be found in one of my apug blogs here:

    http://www.apug.org/forums/blogs/kei...mposition.html

    As for what style of music, I hear everything from Bach to Beastie Boys, it all depends on the situation. I do find a great deal of musical rhythm in photography and tend to look for it.

    (not sure why but the apug blog links seem to have disappeared, perhaps I should move my posts to the articles section? But I really didn't mean for them to be articles per se, just informal, random musings....)

    Music, photography and engineering math are all mixed up in my brain. I enjoyed life the most when I was an aerospace research scientist for NASA, principal oboist of the Norfolk Symphony, and photographing guest artists during dress rehearsals. I also enjoyed helping my wife make six children.

    hi, i like Brian Eno - Music for Airports. It's minimalist ambient music; good accompaniment to photography.

    i always wanted to record sounds and play them with my images
    i even bought a record cutting lathe to do it ... but i ran out of enthusiasm.
    music is always running through my head but it's the music of outside
    or the clank of steam warming up a radiator or the horn from the barge on the bay ...
    you know the little things ... must be "the postman" in me.

    Have you heard the "real instruments" version by Bang On A Can? Quite an interesting take on a piece that was never really conceived for performance by live musicians.

    Personally, I can't separate music from *anything*. It tangles with my photography about as much as it tangles with everything else, which is to say, quite a lot.

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.
