Sonic Paintings proposes a new, broadened way to perceive art in a multi-sensory setting. In addition to visual and background information either from painting description, books or audio guides, the viewer will be able to encounter sonic information contained in painting. This can open average museum visitor’s senses to new experiences and stimulate deeper involvement with a piece of art.
Sonic Paintings was first commissioned by the Hermitage Museum in Amsterdam as a part of the ‘Impressionism: Sensation & Inspiration’ exhibition.
For this project, Monotone designed a sound mapping system using motion tracking. By implementing augmented reality markers, we managed to extract the relative position of the users respect to the painting and translate them into an interactive soundscape which would represent the imaginary displayed on it.
