Art is Music is Art: Andrew Chan and LCD Sound System
By Sarah H Reynolds 
The relationship between art and music runs deep. As Wassily Kandinsky, who famously compared the act of painting to the process of composition, put it, “Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the hammers, the soul is the piano with many strings.” Continuing this tradition, each week AiB Blog will periodically share an insight from a BOS ‘13 artist on how an auditory experience has influenced their visual practice by featuring an artwork and a song of the artist’s choosing, along with a short explanation.
Featured Artwork: ”Hip-topia,” 18” x 24,” acrylic on paper
Artist:  Andrew Chan 
Song:  ’North American Scum’ by LCD Sound System
Connection: In my drawings human figures are set in urban landscapes and either toil like medieval serfs or become giant bloated caricatures of themselves. My style is expressive created with an edgy line, splats of color along with diluted watery paints. Although the title of LCD Sound System’s song ‘North American Scum,” seems to say it all, I like its irreverent tongue in cheek take on American hipster culture attitudes and life styles. I quite relate to it in that way!
