Seeing Music

by Fawn Fritzen, Aurora Workshops

“Going to the symphony is largely an auditory experience. But what if you could visually experience the music, too? Well, now you can. Musicologist Dr. Hannah Chan-Hartley has developed a series of “Visual Listening Guides” that map out the music with icons, colour, and graphical representations of important musical themes.”



Visualizing the Symphony, with Hannah Chan-Hartley

by Andrew Bishko, Musical U

“We invited Hannah to join us here at Musical U to share her thoughts on everything from engaging listeners with visuals and the importance of good graphic design, to the secret of striking the balance between accessible and informative, and what sets her guides apart from the rest.”
