Competition: The Pictures in the Sound - 7

The Pictures in the Sound - 7


One of the best examples of music coming before the image would be the original Conan The Barbarian film. That film's score was created prior to filming beginning. As a result, the scenes were altered and filmed to fit the score in a way that hadn't been done prior. This shows that sound—most notably music—instills an image in the listener.

Listen to the provided song and draw a depiction of what you see in your mind's eye. The goal of this competition is to capture the emotions that it evokes within. At a bare minimum, your entry must have a clear focal point beyond simple abstracts. That means entries cannot be a simple application of a few colors and no shapes akin to simple country flags
