A difficult subject matter to address. I'm not that sure that it is meaningful to separate non-visual source of inspiration and visual ones. According to some theories moods have colors as it is expressed for examples in chromotherapy. If this is right, and it is indeed contested by some, than any "mood" that is created through music, poems, literature etc is translated into visual effects and would influence your photographical expressions. Furthermore, past visual experiences play surely an immediate role whenever we are are subject to inspiration through non-visual sources.
