Group Experiment for Premise

I set up an experiment and invited six people to listen to "The Hall of the Mountain King" music. I provided paper and felt pens and asked them to create shapes in accordance with what they heard.

The participants explained their drawings as follows:

Figure 1 - Commenced with drops of water forming a pool ending with cannon like shapes with the sound bursting from them.

Figure 2 - Interestingly forms a brick like structure being built with light coming from within it.

Figure 3 - Appeared as random circles, except where the music crescendo.

Figure 4 - Created trumpet blasts and sound vibrations in amongst the stalagmites.

Figure 5 - Seems hieroglyphic in appearance with various shapes representing different stages of the music.

Figure 6 - Repeated steep steps that reflected the rise and fall of the music.

In my mind I see the old man walking purposefully along the corridors. He is oblivious to the shapes and images dancing along the walls because they represent whats happening inside his mind. I hope to be able to recreate these shapes in Photoshop in a UPA Style.
