Very much in-keeping with the philosophy behind this blog, is the Tate Modern‘s new venture: Tate Tracks, in which the gallery invite musicians to walk around and find a piece of art that inspires them to write a piece of music. That exclusive piece of music is then played through headphones beside the artwork, and a month later on the website. Check it out.
And just because they’re really really beautiful,
here are some tracks from Jeniferever.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
