Sound is a wonderful thing; it can be so simple an beautiful and yet so raw and packed with emotion. I wanted to capture the raw power of sound in a photograph. Using a red, green, and blue light I tried to replicate the overwhelming power and creativity sound has on people. It is straight forward and in your face just like sound.

The beautiful sound of guitar strings and my grandpa’s voice always made me relax and let all my troubles go for a couple of minutes. When I think of sound I remember when my grandpa was alive, singing and playing the guitar to calm my nerves before a big event or just to get me to relax and fall sleep. Since he passed away I love to go listen to others play the magical guitar.
Earphones are a wonderful creation. They let me listen to my music anywhere, as they are small and portable. I'm a big fan of music, my library spans vast genre's and decades. Music is an art form that has powerful effect on our brain and emotions. According to Diane Bales, Ph.D., "Some of these music pathways actually affect the way we think. Listening to classical music can improve our spatial reasoning, at least for a short time. And learning to play an instrument may have an even longer effect on certain thinking skills."
