This chapter seeks to reflect an expanded concept of visual music which includes embodied visceral affect as a key principle.It rejects traditional narratives around the birth of visual music, engaging wider artistic practices and forms of expression, with particular emphasis on the painterly works of J.M.W. Turner. This chapter posits that Turner became a progenitor of visual music when he ‘broke’ the canvas, and that visual musicians can use this key moment to build a new conceptual foundation of visual music upon the premise of affective expression
