Have you ever wondered what your favorite pieces of music might "look like"? Come and "see", with a bit of a music theorist's "mind's eye", if a picture really might be "worth a thousand notes" ... and maybe even have a favorite piece of music of your own in mind, and find out what kinds of designs it might generate! During her recent educational leave from Capilano University, Grace undertook the book project "Musical Nature - Making Art of Music Analysis", based on the idea that music heard to be "beautiful", patterned, or even just "interesting", could be shown and seen to be so. She has been working on seven Musical Nature "gallery-chapters", each featuring a different way of making designs to music. The results range from tree-like constructions to wheeling constellations, abstract animated figures to color-coded chord towers and delicate web and mollusk-like tracings. Each type of design comes from noticing features of the music while listening, and responding to it "live", on canvas, paper or with music or design software.

Presenter: Grace McNab

Capilano University Faculty member, instructing music theory, aural skills and keyboard skills in the Diploma in Music and Jazz Studies programs.

Grace McNab has been teaching music theory and aural skills courses at Capilano University since 1989, and served as Coordinator of the Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies from 1998-2013. A pianist with a Master's Degree in Music theory, she has also studied architecture, drawing and painting, conducting, and the Brazilian game/dance/martial art of Capoeira, as well as working on personal professional development in composition and jazz improvisation. To enhance her teaching of music theory, she has been drawn towards various kinds of expressive visual diagrams to portray aspects of music such as phrase structure, harmonic progression and overall musical form.

FREE, no registration required. Co-sponsored with Capilano University as part of the Capilano Universe 2015 lecture series.
