This month, the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, in Ridgefield, Conn., will present Music, which language on the organization’s website describes as a “series of exhibitions and related events that explore the intersection of art and music.”

Music will be on view at the Aldrich Sept. 22 through March 9, 2014.

In addition to works by Simon Blackmore, Martin Creed, James Mollison, and Xaviera Simmons, the Aldrich will showcase an extensive cassette-tape collection owned by the late Sol LeWitt.

The museum’s website explains that “The Music Collection reveals LeWitt’s encyclopedic interest in classical music, from the Baroque to the Minimalists, through his collection of over 3,600 cassette tapes, which have never previously been exhibited publicly.”

I tend to listen to orchestral or solo piano works while I’m writing. What do you listen to when you’re creating new work?
