Yes, in most cases, a creator shines in one area. But it is fascinating to view — or hear — an artist apply traits of one medium to another. The term “artist” is typically reserved for those who work in the visible or tangible realm. That’s not to say musicians aren’t artists, or that they’re confined to just music. Many are not, and it can be fascinating to enjoy visual art from their musical perspective. For this feature we talked to five Rochester musician-artists and had them dissect the origins of their creative expressions. Which came first? Which is paramount? If forced to choose, which direction would they go? Read on for their answers. (Pictured: Rock ‘n’ Roll Social Club member Doug Mac “inside” one of his cartoon creations.)
