This is what happens when you try to transform a song into a painting. The composer is the renowned Roman Haubenstock Ramati and the text author is William Shakespeare. The music was created in 1960 and this painting is trying to capture every note of it. The artist not only portrays the notes as they are but he adds his own emotions and feelings while his was listening to the composition. How do you feel about Art and Music? Can they be seen as one and the same thing? Or do we need to keep them separated?

Below the entire album with the sonnet. See if you can spot the notes while they play!
