Iteration 1 of the Five Senses Project of the JoLiv Collaborative presents the harmonization of Vision and Music! Comprovisations are a method of harmonizing the visual and the aural where the musician and the artist work in a continuous process of drawing sound or music and then taking that drawing or painting and interpreting it back into music or sound. The resulting exhibition includes a series of drawings and paintings and sound installations that correspond with each collaborative object. The pieces are meant to stand in harmony with one another to inform the viewer to look more closely and hear more when interacting with the work.
