This third project will explore various aspects of language and their correspondences to music and the visual. I have selected some short writings from which visual and musical works are to be created.

Elements of language defined for purposes of understanding relationships to the visual and music:

Words - a distinct sequence of phonemes either represented visually or spoken, having silence between, or a visual representation of direct meaning associated with experience using images and other symbolic components.

Alphabet - the phonemes and syllables that make up words, visual components that make up phonemes and syllables, or those directly tied to meanings themselves through experience.

Grammar - the relationships of words in the formation of individual phrases understood as having a starting point and ending point.

Form - the compositional structure of the work from beginning to end, including the plot or storyline, introduction, various forms of development, and ending.

Characters - the number of individuals present in the dialogue and/or the perspective of the narration.

Setting - aspects of the work not inclusive of speaking, including time, place, and those of experience.

Meaning - the relationship of the other elements of language to experience, whether directly or indirectly in allegory, with varying degrees of accuracy and vagueness as a result of subjective interpretation, including that resulting from vocabulary and the number of words known in order to understand words less frequently encountered, as well as those of experience alone.
