Digital Concept Art Inspires A Digital Music Composer
CGSociety recently profiled composer Justin Lassen who’s been creating scores for digital concept art he’s seen. Lassen noted that many digital artists listen to music while working and allow those sounds to filter in. He works in reverse. He looks for inspiration in the color, texture and subjects of these pieces attempting to place himself in the scene.
In a sense, the music is already composed, and my eye converts what it sees into audio, through my fingers. I believe that it is very natural for visual artists to want to add a new dimensionality to their work with audio.
