Making Music and Art

Musician and Artist Lennie Peterson is passionate about the marriage of Music and Visual Art. He’s agreed to present at Pecha Kucha Night Worcester Vol. 2 to share his passion and insight about the spontaneous, improvised creation within the relationship of Music and Visual Art.
He also shared this concept recently with friend Kaki King, wow-ing her with the idea of painting a guitar with her music….using the action of strumming to mark the guitar. This idea took seed and grew into Kaki King “The Exhibition”. Ovation donated 12 guitars to be turned into art by 12 artists with a 13th guitar painted live at the exhibit and auctioned off to benefit VH1’s Save The Music.

Using the same guitar that she played “Pink Noise” on The David Letterman Show, she dipped her hands into pink acrylic paint and strummed out Pink Noise on stage at the exhibit (admitting that she would have to play Karaoke style because the sound will change as soon as the paint hits the guitar strings)
Thus creating Pink Noise The Guitar. This guitar hasn’t gone up for auction yet so stay tuned for where and when to bid. Until then check out these photos from the show.
