Broadcast Music, Inc. composer Mark McKenzie has inspired award-winning New Hampshire artist Craig Pursley to exhibit 38 beautiful paintings, each created while listening to different excerpts from 12 of McKenzie’s film soundtracks. This unique, quite possibly the first, art with music show, entitled The Circle of Inspiration, will take place at the Tirage Fine Art Gallery in Pasadena, CA, February 7 - March 7, 2015.

“I have been listening to soundtracks while I paint for more than 25 years,” explains Pursley. “I thought I knew all the great ones, from Korngold to Zimmer, so I was surprised when I first heard the score to The Ultimate Gift. So melodic and interesting. One of the many things I love about Mark’s music is that it can convey joy, sadness, hurt, loss, celebration, as well as immeasurable power.”
