A hybrid, self-generative & directed project on mapping a piece of music, using processed information and paint pouring.

Visually Mapping Music

MSoA's 2nd year brief, asked us to visually map a piece of music. They provided a list of 6 tracks to choose from,I decided on a reconstruction of 5th Symphony by Beethoven

 

Instead of using my own response to the music, I asked 12 participants to provide a colour response for each minute and a word to describe their experience.

I processed this information by adding each response together using acrylic paint mixed with a pouring medium, to get a generative response. 

I also produced a key to go alongside the installation, helping provide context to the abstraction.
