A collaborative art show that transforms visual art into digital information that is compiled into sound and arranged musically.
IDENTITY: The Sound in Art is a NadaDada 2012(June 14-17) initiative between multimedia artist Kelsey Sweet and musician Scott Turek. The IDENTITY installation is a bridge between painting and sound by which digital information is a direct aural representation of visual art. For this transformation, Kelsey has gathered her artworks and composed high quality photographs of each individual piece. Scott then breaks down the high-quality monochromatic images of Kelsey’s art into digital information using a program. The digital information is then exported as an audio file and is further arranged in unique, meaningful and dimensional visual/auditory experiences.
Basically we take a monochromatic image of one of Kelsey's artworks:
and run it through a program that transforms it in to digital sound information:
After collecting a series of artwork sounds, Scott composes musique concrète style music like you hear in the video :)
What this Kickstarter will fund:
1. Paint and minor construction supplies to set up the show space
2. Frames for the artworks
3. Simple/inexpensive lo-capacity mp3 players for sound display in front of each artwork
4. Headphones for each mp3 player
5. A PA, mixer, and multiple speakers for live surround-sound exhibitions
6. Renting/purchasing (whichever is cheaper) a projector and screen for live visual displays/video exhibitions
7. Opening night amenities
8. A photographer for the images
*NOTE: These three paintings + a windows .exe file are what you hear in the opening video!
