Natalia Zukerman & Adrianne Gonzalez: Art.Is.Song Tour
May 19, 2012
Art.is.Song blurs the boundaries and intersections of visual art and music. Join us at Club Passsim on Saturday, 5/19 for live music and a visual art exhibition.
Songwriters and artists Adrianne Gonzalez and Natalia Zukerman met four years ago at a music festival and had an immediate musical connection. Relying on imagery to convey emotions, both artists' songwriting style is very visual. It seemed only natural for them to collaborate.
Over the years, Adrianne and Natalia have played numerous shows together, adding harmonies and guitar parts to each other's songs. They have also co-written some songs. The project they call Art.is.Song takes their collaboration even further, blurring the boundaries and intersections of two disciplines while opening up the many possibilities in the integration of visual art and music.
They start with a lyric or image from a song. Once they've talked about it, Adrianne (who's work is textural and lyric-driven) or Natalia (who's work is illustrative and image-based) will start the piece. At some point, they switch.
The results are powerful visual representations of song- the colorful emotion of the lyrics captured on canvas, wood and paper.
