    Hey, GXHpainter, could you give the full name of the piece by Chopin? I went to Youtube to look it up, since I don't know his work except for generally, but I like his work especially when actually watching someone perform it close up, which is better than any dance in the complexity and the sound coming out of the piano, though dance does have other components that the music performance would naturally lack . But I found there were several Polonaises. Which were you listening to?

    As an arrangement of colors and shapes it looks great. And I can see some of Chopin's motifs being graphically represented, like the iterative quality of rapidly played keys. Also he tends to do cascading runs that often feel as if they are spiraling. Also, depending on the interpretation, he also may have shown temperature shifts for contrast and movement.

    Other than that, I won't comment on that translation aspect of this one until I can hear it and "see" what you were being inspired by.

    D Akey....thanks for your elaboration on this piece.. I got this download from iTunes: Polonaise In a Flat Op 53 (The Heroic) Interpretations by Emile Pandolfi

    This is one of my favorites of yours. The title is a wonderful entre to the visual. In college, I started many mornings listening to Chopin. The Polinnaise group in particular. At 8 yrs, I did my first recital - the variation known as Twinkle twinkle little star.
