Romance Without Words

My final stab at this method of translating music to color was this piece by Gabriel Faure, ROMANCE WITHOUT WORDS. It is interesting that artists continually try to say the same thing in different media.
I tried to indicate a little bit of the dynamics in this piece by having the color take up more space when it was louder.  I will try this, and other pieces using this method again and not fade each note into black, as I have done so far, as this creates a line between colors and doesn't actually represent what happens to notes in a musical piece.  I think the whole thing should fade at the edges of the screen instead as the piece gradually sinks into time.

I do think these colors are rather romantic so perhaps Faure has transcended yet another medium.
