About Cynthia Bryndis Schilling

Cynthia is an MFA candidate in Graphic Design at UMass Dartmouth. She holds a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance from UMass Amherst, and a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies: Art & Design from Fitchburg State University. As a designer, Cynthia especially enjoys creating design material for music organizations, where she can draw upon her backgrounds in both music and design.


As a graphic designer and pianist, I am inspired by the similarities between music and design. This artist’s book is a visualization and analysis of Sonata no. 2 by the composer Alexander Scriabin. The color, typography, and composition of the images and book reflect the structural and expressive qualities of the music.
