Music as Art

February 7, 2010 at 10:31 AM

Last night's dream cannot be explained, but I must attempt, lest I forget. I played a piano/cello trio by Brahms--one of his yet unheard compositions, of course--and was pleasantly surprised to find that the melody had taken the form of a serpent, which wove in and out of the tapestry; each of us took turns carrying it along as it reappeared. The result was a work of art that lingered in visual form even though I cannot recall the sound of its sweetness.

What a wonderful, expressive image!  I wish my dreams were as interesting.

Good one! Thanks for sharing it. Serpent came to my dream in the past as well and also to some of my earlier paintings. It must be universally symbolic.
