The 19th century Romantics interpreted 'art as expression' in terms of images expressing the artist's feelings or subjectivity (dreams imagination, horror); and this was then reworked by the New York based abstract expressionists in the 20th century who had close contact with composers such as John Cage and Morton Feldman. Feldman spoke about sound as if it were something physical, malleable, something to be shaped, like pigment.
What does this disclose?
We could rework this tradition by swapping photography for painting and music for poetry to give us 'As is photography so is music'. What would that disclose apart from connecting us to Romanticism in music? The possibility of form of genre and media blending. A suggestion here could be that of a photographic tone poem---in the sense of visual and aural tonality? How do we understand the concept of a photographic tone poem? Or visual tonaility?
We could begin to reply to these questions in terms of a retreat from the edges of things and seeing patches of light, colour and shade. A tonal poetic photography would mean a dissolving of the linear boundaries and stressing the quality of light and atmosphere that unites all objects in the visual field. Is it an emotional, immediate way of seeing? Maybe we can use poiesis in the sense of 'a bringing forth', whose dynamic becoming (jamming?) affirms its connectivity in culture, and which lets things be in a moving flux of energy flows.
These kind of questions open up a space where there a reside links between a visual culture and an aural culture? A network of photographers who are also musicians and visa versa? If there is such a digital network--and I do not know of one---then what kind of work are they producing? Is the creative photography being produced expressing a musical mood?
