About the Book
My thesis involves visualizing Sonata no. 2, a piano piece by the composer Alexander Scriabin. Scriabin was interested in color, and he believed that combining music with other stimuli would enhance the audience’s experience of the music. Inspired by this idea of a multi-sensory experience, I created an image for each phrase (or short musical idea) in the music and designed them into a book. My goal was to visually communicate the different rhythms, harmonies, melodies, moods, and characters of each phrase through color, composition, and type.
