The Blues

The Blues - student project

Blues piano is something I've played for as long as I can remember. Being from England, the places like Chicago, New Orleans and Detroit have long held a fascination in my mind for being the birth places of the music I love. So, with this all in mind, I've decided to base my project on the Blues and the artists, instruments and places that define it!

Mind Map

As with anything in music, it'll of course have some element of musical notes and instruments. Though I'd like to show those things being interwined with one another. The mood of the blues is something that I'd really like to show in my images too - probably through the colour palette.

Mood board

I love the side lighting on a lot of blues albums and portraits. Also the very limited colour schemes that you see. I'd really like to get a sense of mood, soul and smokey-ness (of course that's a word) but also a little bit of history around the music and the places where it developed.
