Artist Martin Klimas came up with a clever idea: he put splatters of plaint on a scrim over a speaker and played music. As the volume was turned up, the paint popped up in the air, and he captured the moments in a photograph. It’s a synchronised cacophony of art and music. It also looks fantastic.
I would love to get my favourite songs framed like this, as if the painting captures a physical moment of a feeling towards audible sensations. Klimas used music from Miles Davis to Karlheinz Stockhausen and more and needed about six months and over 1000 photographs to create the series. [NY Times]
