How can music be represented visually? “Canvas” is a project that examines this question in a systematic way through the use of graphic tools. A formal language is generated by six songs, broken down into a multitude of notes that each have their own visual code. The results are then presented as audio-visual experiments through animations, which are then sequenced in a publication with the aim of rep-resenting the rhythm and melody in print and reinterpreting the musical score. The pieces come from six musicians: I analysed and reworked them with several musical software programs in order to extract the maximum number of notes and separate these into several tracks, so that each note could be designed separately.
