Layering lines and thoughts: A study of musical time through drawing

01 Feb 2020-Journal of Writing in Creative Practice (Intellect)-Vol. 13, Iss: 2, pp 201-217
TL;DR: In this article, the role of the spiral line or helix as a visual model that could lend shape to musical time constituting the main frame of the drawing is explored, while the text engages with a wider theoretical approach of time through Chronos and Aion, two categories of time developed by French philosopher Gilles Deleuze primarily in The Logic of Sense.
Abstract: Through the analysis of the drawing Sans Titre (Apres P. B. Notations) (2017), the following article seeks to explore the role of writing in my own artistic practice, which is concerned with the relation between music and drawing. This article examines the creative process that is carried out in relation to drawing with a musical composition, in this case Pierre Boulez’s Notations (1945), and how the imbrication of text influences and shapes the process and outcome of the artwork. In addition, this article analyses how the text engages with a wider theoretical approach of time, through ‘Chronos’ and ‘Aion’, two categories of time developed by French philosopher Gilles Deleuze primarily in The Logic of Sense ([1969] 2004), and the way they relate to drawing and opening up new ways of understanding it. Thus, the research will look at the role of the spiral line or helix as a visual model that could lend shape to musical time constituting the main frame of the drawing.
