Minor Waltz- Art Experiment Piece

Minor Waltz by Anais Azul

I composed this piece as a part of a collection of three waltz pieces for a visual art experiment to see if this song in a minor key would affect what the viewer saw in the image (a photograph I took) differently than a happier song in a major key. It indeed made a big difference. People Associated the sad song with melancholy and how the subject of the image lost hope or has fallen, rather than the subject of the photo rising when the piece in a major key was played. Below is an image of that experiment. The viewers wrote down their comments  on a circular piece of paper and hooked them onto a giant staff. Each musical piece had a corresponding color of paper so I could collect my information more easily and to make it more visual
