“The sound you do not hear but see, and the visual you cannot see but hear, is the work.” – Rob Mazurek

At nearly 400 pages of full-color artwork and editorial, Chromatic: The Crossroads of Color and Music is a dynamic print presentation of independent musicians and artists who are using or exploring color in unorthodox ways. It’s a highly saturated, prismatic presentation of some of today’s most adventurous underground artists, with the same stylistic reach and aesthetic standards that readers expect from ALARM Press.

Over the course of 12 chapters, readers are introduced to:

– Performers who saturate their stage shows in vibrant shades

– Musicians who create concept albums based on color

– Kaleidoscopic, polychromatic cover art

– Composers and other famous musicians who experience musical synesthesia, the involuntary intersection of senses where someone might “see” notes as different colors or shapes

– Special guest editors and featured artists who share their inspirations

– The concept of audible color

– Wild illustrations of musical notes translated into hues to create elaborate geometric works of art

– Bands photographed in their favorite hues
