CICA and USC Art Students United Creativity

We recently were part of a paint to music event through USC's Art program. CICA a group of USC's most talented musicians, many with advanced degrees in their chosen profession and continuing their education and work as performing musicians have created a collaborative association in which they want to add other elements of the arts in combination with the music.  CICA provided the artists with several MP3 musical choices and each artist chose the music that most inspired them to create a unique work of  art.

The Music I selected to paint to was, "In C", a Terry Riley original composition from the 60's. It just so happens that "In C" was the most collaborative piece and the grand finale of the evening with it's unique sound lasting approximately 18 minutes. Because of the steady beat of the music, I was inspired to dot my canvas in an impressionistic style, keeping the beat as I painted. Here is my painting "In C".

 Yours Truly,
Jean Bourque
