The Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library collaborates with 5 visual artists in music/art exchange

The Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library convinced 5 of our favorite visual artists to join us: we provided each artist with a song to use as inspiration to create a visual piece. Each artist provided us with a visual work, which we used as the inspiration to write and record a song. We documented our songwriting process and posted videos below showcasing our approach to this project.

The final pieces (and songs) were shown and performed at: Out of the Blue Gallery on September 14, 2012.

The night also featured performances by:

Rob Potylo Frank (http://adfrank.com/).

The artists:

Kristilyn (Zombie Romance) created a piece inspired by our song “Stranger” and we wrote a song inspired by “The Procession.”
