Eye Music in Red Major
(Marie Menken, 5.5 mins, color, 1961)
A field of lights, out of focus and abstract. The bulbs take on other forms. The colors streak. The piece is silent. The music is like jazz, free jazz, without a sense of order, but rather themes. Mostly, red.
I wonder if the heart is connected to the eyes in the same way it seems connected to the ears. There are certain images that tug on heart strings just as certain instruments carry a mood. The images here do not wholly resonate with me. They do not spark a particular emotion, but they do entertain. Perhaps this is more eye candy than eye music.
