My concept for 'Fifteen Stories' was to create 15 x 2 min pieces of original music to accompany a single image and a compelling story. The associated narrative for some images are fictional, but in the majority of cases these are actual true stories. The aim of each piece is to illustrate how music can illicit emotion to a static image, which allows the imagination of the listener to take on their own perception of the story.
This process proved to be a valuable tool that inspired my own creativity and inspiration in composing music. The Method that I use today was inspired by this project.
