In the current studies related to music and image, several scholars have recognized that there is a narrow link between these areas, which can affect a synesthesia of sensory perceptions. When aural and visual sensations are well connected, the conformity provoked can complement existing meanings or add new meanings.
This article explores the confluence of aural and visual imaginary by analyzing and performing the piano preludes of two composers, namely Claude Debussy and Shengjing Liao. In the specific angle of view, these composers are culturally separated from the West and East, but imagery connected. Our research focuses on the revelation of the aural image and the visual image, in the perspective of the piano performer, while the musical sense is transformed into short videos, through the recreation of the pianist, and while this recreation of visual images is expressed musically by piano performance to achieve the mutual complementation.
