The relationship between music and art has become so intertwined that it can be hard to imagine one outside the context of the other. And of their countless unions, we often are drawn to both the most colorful and the most dreadful—the most radiant and luminous as well as the darkest and most fear inspiring.
This vivid collection of contemporary, underground musicians and artists documents those who explore the dynamic relationship between music and color. Over more than 350 pages, Chromatic presents powerful album art, over-saturated stage shows, symbolic album themes, composers who experience synesthesia, an introduction to audible color, bands photographed in their favorite colors, and much more.
Featured artists include Sonny Kay, Seripop, John Zorn, Daft Punk, Sigur Rós front-man Jónsi, Blue Man Group, The Zhou Brothers, Ratatat, Holy Fuck, Damon Locks of The Eternals, Rob Mazurek, NewVillager, Andy Gilmore, and many others.
