The unseen beauty of music: Music scores in color

Colormusik reveals what traditional sheet music (black ink on white paper) cannot.  Carefully chosen palettes visually recreate music's emotional content, structure, and more. 

Many musicians associate colors or color patterns with keys. The colors behind Colormusik's scores are associated with the emotions, tension and release, counterpoint lines, and harmonic patterns of the music - these are the "unseen stories" in the music that color can help convey. Colors are selected according to rules of color theory, associating blues with calm, and red with passion.

As a Professor of Piano at the University of Houston, I particularly admire the beauty of this art in terms of it's colorful enhancement of Bach's work. As teachers, we constantly strive to instruct our students to use their imagination and see a wide spectrum of emotional colors in the music they study. This art evokes the idea that there is so much more to the music than black and white notes on the page; we must hear endless palettes of sonic colors and strive to perform it 'in the moment.' Chip Miller shows us marvelously creative portrait of what this music can be. Bravo!

Such a lovely piece of musical and visual art. The rendering of Bach's Prelude and Fugue in C is not only beautiful, but it is also a wonderful insight into the compositional genius of Bach. A perfect addition to my piano studio, but it would certainly be great in any space.

What is not visible from these photos is the richness of the printing. I am sending mine to be framed with museum glass. Lovely!
