Some years ago I found myself thinking of the connections be- tween painting and music. The proportions of objects, colors and textures of a painting are mag- nificently calibrated by the artist. What if you take these as a pat- tern to create a musical compo- sition? Would it be as interesting and surprising as the painting?
These thoughts came to my mind when I lived in Barcelona and visited the famous Fundació Joan Miró. His artwork, the strength of his paintings, his unique language of symbols deeply impressed me.
Thinking about using a picture as a starting point for composing a piece of music, it was soon clear to me, that there was plenty of inspiration in the world of Joan Miró.
