What Does a Painting Sound Like?
The next edition of the College of St. Scholastica’s Arts and Letters Colloquium Series is titled What Does a Painting Sound Like? And How Would a Musical Composition Look on a Canvas? The lecture is held in Room 3625 of Tower Hall on the CSS Campus. Refreshments will be served.
Art Professor Paul LaJeunesse and Assistant Music Professor Nick Susi will examine the nature of interdisciplinary creativity. LaJeunesse will discuss his artistic process of translating sound into image, while Susi performs and analyzes a 19th-century piano work composed by Franz Liszt and inspired by Raphael’s Lo Sposalizio, an oil painting depicting a marriage ceremony between Mary and Joseph.
The colloquium will end with the premiere of a new video by LaJeunesse, set to a live performance by Susi of Philip Glass’ piano piece Mad Rush.
