    Entries in John Coltrane (1)


    Taking Giant Steps

    With reverence to the great John Coltrane. My visualization of John Coltrane's music is of flying dragonflies, especially when listening to Giant Steps. Great music can provoke a secondary sensory perception and for me it's visual. 

    Michal Levy, a designer and musician, writes about her connection between music and visual imagery, producing a fantastic animation set to Giant Steps.
