This photography activity is inspired by my friend Mel’s ‘Walk/Listen/Respond Project’. I have taken Mel’s base rules and adapted then for my needs!
My rules are:  Plan an album length walk.  Choose an album to match your mood/weather/walk/whatever.  Walk.  Respond to the music intuitively. Let it play through you. Create photos that reflect how the music makes you feel.  Edit photos whilst listening to same album.  Share your favourites.
I chose to listen to War, Peace and Diplomacy by Tom Hickox and you can listen here. I love his soothing, deep voice and thought it would be uplifting. I was forgetting the title of the album! Whilst the songs are tales of war, peace and diplomacy and the overall tone is somewhat melancholic, there are also themes of love and hope. Phew.
I didn’t set out to create a photo for each song. More to allow the music to flow through me; the words seeping into my subconscious and the melodies into my bones. from there I simply responded to the visual stimulation.
