While viewing these images, please imagine the following piece of music to be playing:

Frédéric Chopin: Nocturne Nr. 22 op. 77 Nr. 1

If you are not familiar with this particular piece, please imagine just any piece of classical music, preferably in A or D minor, preferably interpreted by a grand piano and a single violin.

Imagine the first notes dripping like the first rain. Imagine the melody dragging the ocean to shore. Imagine how the sound changes the landscape, how it eats rock and air alike, how it huddles against the horizon, pressing urgently, like bare cheeks on the pavement.
