Mankind’s ultimate capital asset is creative vision.- Barbara Januszkiewicz “Creativity is not being afraid to be different. It takes madness to jump at an idea that no one else believes in. So let's be mad.”- Barbara Januszkiewicz Jazz visual artist. Her art has consistently advocated spreading art outside of preconceived boundaries, to inspire creativity in all areas of life, similarly to the style of Joseph Beuys. She is driven to take risks and see opportunities in alternative approaches and expressions in both her visual and musical aesthetics. “The excitement and the unexpected risks are what attract me to avant-garde, free jazz and fusion jazz. I approaches seeing music with using art, even with traditional media. As an artist I place emphasis on vision, so naturally my jazz projects/films focus primarily on visual perception. However, what if I could fuse cinematic projects with the perceptual vision of music? My philosophy is not just employing experimental techniques, but also being able to interpret material in various ways, such as gestures or methods of defamiliarization, as new visual sight, all interpretation of sound/music.” In reconnecting with her passion for jazz she started to see art in musical terms, a fusion of jazz and painting. From her project Jazz Vision evolved from a real thirst for merging visual arts with new technology. It opens a new way of seeing music, its colors and textures, and breaks down barriers to experiencing art and to keeping art relevant

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
