Three are melodic, harmonic and motivic. I explored the differences between these visually. I designed a motif to represent the main tune of the piece and used that as the basis of these explorations. This motif is partly based on the shape of the tune but also is similar to articulation notation symbols.
This gave me some ideas for motifs and shapes.
Going back to my research on Richter, to try and compose my artwork in a shared philosophy as Mingus, I need to understand his artistic intention:
Planned structure x number measures per section
Planned ensemble sections
Planned chord progression
Richter took 1 aspect of artistic intention, or general artistic intention, not specifics like this. This could be:
Framework plus free improvised aspect, framework could be linocut improvisation mono print
I could make a timeline into a box or circle, improvise within it? I can improvise in art as well as in music.
I constructed a timeline and used this to make some structures which I filled with colors and textures based on the music.
These were a bit too rigid. One thing I did notice is that the double bass is the structure, it begins and ends the piece and drives and supports it thought and may be a better way to represent the structure.
