Visual Music

1 hour virtual event

Event short description

Led by a globally recognized composer, Visual Music explores how our sense of hearing and seeing can work in concert to more fully experience our world. Utilizing both sides of the brain, we will transform visual shapes into sounds, and sounds into graphic abstraction in a one hour virtual session led by composer and artist Nathan Hall.

This fun visual-sonic collage is filled with laughter and reveals how each person thinks and perceives in a unique way. Visual Music is perfect for anyone looking for creative team building, unique celebrations, LGBTQ+, DE&I and Neuro-divergent ERG events, and empathy-building communication skills workshop.

How it works

As an ice breaker, everyone will share their favorite sound (and nothing boring like the sound of the ocean). We will translate sounds to abstract drawing and drawings back into sound (see video for how Nathan Hall acts out his favorite sound, guess what the sound is before you hit play!).

For the main exercise, we will listen to a music compilation and use a digital drawing tool to create a sonic collage where everyone will illustrate what they hear. You will be amazed to see how everyone hears and sees differently! That’s true empathy and the event will be filled with laughter. Everyone will have a blast!
