Harold Town was one of the first Canadian artists to start using collage as a serious technique for artistic expression. "Music Behind" is one of his most important works in this discipline. Interested in texture and the layering of everyday objects, Town uses the back of a television set that belonged to his friend, painter Albert Franck. Town was part of a group of young painters who began meeting at Franck’s house, initially to watch baseball on television. These artists ultimately went on to form the Painters Eleven.
