Light painting was created by pioneer Gjon Mili, who shot a series of experimental light painting photos of a violinist in 1952. With a long exposure and by attaching a light to the Violinist's bow, Mili captured the image below.
Photographer Stephen Orlando's recent light painting with music is absolutely stunning. By attaching LED lights to the bows of violin, viola, and cello players, Orlando is able to capture a creative representation of the sounds created by musicians. A great article on petapixel.com.
