the image of music

Have you ever wanted to see music? Or wondered if Daft Punk's music looks any different from Bach? That's right, see/looks, visual words not auditory ones. 

An incredible art exhibition asks the question - what does music look like? Not only that but it finds a way to answer that question. 'Sonic' is the latest project by German photographer Martin Klimas. Paint is put on top of a speaker and then music is played at full volume – creating explosions of colour. 

Bach, Toccata & Fugue in D Minor

Richard Wagner, Ride of the Valkyries 

Charlie Parker, Ornithology

Kraftwerk, Transistor 

 Daft Punk, Around the World
