Music is in itself art and by having acquired that status it has also earned the right of influencing those it comes in contact with in beautiful and personal ways. It is said that: “Music is a piece of art that goes in the ears and straight to the heart” and who could argue with that? Few of us could spend more than 4 hours without listening to a bit of music and that is precisely the reason why. Our minds and souls need constant stimulation and music makes us remember of the beauty that lies within. We have decided to bring to you some of the most beautiful works of art that have been inspired by the concept of music and what is interesting is that they are as beautiful as the music itself. Enjoy!
Music is The Key of Love
Music operates with keys (tonic notes) which basically declares how a song is supposed to be played and in which range. This is a Sol Key that has been beautifully crafted to incorporate the keys of a piano as well as a musical measure in another key (Fa key) – maybe the artist was trying to create a key that holds more keys. Whichever the case, it looks gorgeous.
“Information is not knowledge.
Knowledge is not wisdom.
Wisdom is not truth.
Truth is not beauty.
Beauty is not love.
Love is not music.
Music is THE BEST.” – Frank Zappa
Self-Expression to the Point of Obsession?
So many artists have turned their talent and craft into an obsession- just think of Van Gogh, Dali and many others, and some say that music is no exception because the need of expression of emotion may be so intense that artists can only do so through their music. So for them it is not just the ultimate joy but also an existential need.
“Music . . . can name the unnameable and communicate the unknowable.” – Leonard Bernstein
When Notes Become Flowers
Sheet music and the entire musical language is a beautiful thing- it allows the vision of composers and talented writers to be showcased exactly as they envisioned it even after hundreds of years. It may be in fact true that music makes all things blossom into the most beautiful of flowers.
“To stop the flow of music would be like the stopping of time itself, incredible and inconceivable.” – Aaron Copland
The Music of Nature
The beauty of music also resides in the fact that it isn’t exclusive to mankind. In fact, it is the song of nature that inspired man in the first place so why not raise an ode to nature’s most exquisite singers? Birds!
“Without music, life would be a mistake.” Friedrich Nietzsche
Art on Skin
In truth, some of the most beautiful music inspired artwork pieces have been in the form of tattoos done by musicians of enthusiasts. Truthfully, “music is how feelings sound like” .
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination
and life to everything.” – Plato
Meant to show that music is indeed alive with the feelings of those listening to it, this is a piece that speaks to so many. Stunning.
“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent” – Victor Hugo
Sing of Love
When we can’t speak of love, music is what comes through so why not sing of love instead? Music is in fact one of the best attempts we have at winning someone’s heart over and with the perfectly chosen ballad we might just succeed in winning over the love of our lives.
