Leitmotifs

I did some brief research into Leitmotifs – a word that I have personally never come across. The definition of this word:  “A recurrent theme throughout a musical or literary composition, associated with a particular person, idea, or situation.” (Oxford Dictionary) It means a recurring idea or theme through a piece of music or literature. In a way this reminds me of my brief, creating a character related to a music composed for them. The character will be associated and reflect the music. In a way similar to a Leitmotif – they will be connected to the music and be represented by the music. I like this idea of music representing an idea – it can embody and create a mood and reflect a person. Music can bring so much to the visual arts.
