The following video was sent via the Art Therapy Facebook page and is an art piece that is being featured at the Notre Dame School of Art. It’s a creative blend of improvised piano and painting and a great illustration of what can happen when two talented people – pianist Sunny Promyotin and artist Erica Orth – come together and collaborate on an empty canvas to create a unique musical art experience. It’s interesting to watch them improvise and sub-consciously create something unique that is based in the moment – with Sunny improvising his piano notes based on the painting and Erica simultaneously improvising her paint strokes based on the musical notes she is hearing. It’s a riveting back and forth between two artists and mediums that results in an artistic form of communication and conversation.
