Acclaimed jazz trumpet player Jukka Eskola and Hiroaki Koshiba, abstract live painter spent a morning at the deserted docks of Kalasatama (fish harbour) in Helsinki, Finland. The video was directed by Joel Hypén and filmed by Hypén and Antti Ohtonen.
Hiroaki Koshiba has created a signature painting style by developing a improvisational technique called Sound Painting. The technique involves collaboration with a musician and the improvisational translation of music in to an abstract painting. Koshiba is intrigued by the relationship of music and images and has collaborated with numerous musicians. He is also interested in jazz improvisation, as this collaboration with Jukka Eskola, one of Europe's top trumpet players elaborates. Sound painting casts a new and unique approach to music and painting as improvisation which is inspired by each other. This video aims to elaborate this technique.
“Sound painting is casting a new and unique approach of possibilities of music and painting as improvisation which is inspired by each other. It also shows the moment how the painting is coming out and and proceeded with the sound”, Koshiba states.
