Murat Erdemsel's Musical Paintings

After being presented around the world, Murat Erdemsel's lectures on tango music have given rise to a new presentation and concept that he calls MUSIC PAINTINGS.  The paintings which evolved from simple illustrations and animations, enable us to see, for the first time, the structure and essence of the music itself.  The lecture provides an opportunity to deepen our understanding of the paintings, and through them, the intricacies of the structure, harmony, orchestration, and melodies within the music. 

The Lecture was originally inspired by Charlie Chaplin’s musical performance in the 1940 movie Great Dictator; “move with the rhythm of music, Brahm’s Hungarian Dance no: 5” and another brilliant performance; “Argument to Beethoven’s 5th” from 50’s legendary TV sitcom artists, Nanette Fabray and Sid Ceasar.
