Call for Art: Music for your Eyes, Juried by Peter Frank | Orange County Center for Contemporary Art | Sunday, 31. December 2017

Call for art, all media, open to the entire planet.

"All the arts in common aspire to the condition of music," Walter Pater wrote, indicating the uniquely abstract and immaterial nature of the art of sound. In modern times, that condition of inherent subjectivity has helped liberate the more 'concrete' art forms -- especially visual art. We thus have a trail of artwork inspired by music cutting through the 20th century and into the 21st. As an artist, how do you give form to your response to music? What does music look like to you? How do you balance your observations with your feelings in response to "organized sound" (as Edgard Varèse called music)? Is your work designed to accompany music, reflect it, or embody it? -- Peter Frank
