About

Soundscapes (Physikospectrosymphonia) by Phil Hackett (2018) 

12 x Acrylic and gloss on photographic paper with built in electronic audio player - approximately 42cm by 30cm (not including frame).

Creating 12 paintings that you can hear as well as see, of reflective views of soundwaves in nature for a solo exhibition in Nov 2018

A series of large photographs of reflected landscapes in still lake waters that have been overpainted by the artist to create soundwave shaped images from the actual landscape outline created by nature in the original photographs. These soundwave shapes are then converted electronically from visual reference into sound reference that is then playable for the viewer to hear by the touch of a button built into the paintings frame while observing the work.

Physikospectrosymphonia – Natural (physikos) To Look (spectro) Harmonious Sound (symphonia) is the process I have adapted of converting a digital scan of a naturally formed analogue soundwave image into a digital soundwave that can be reproduced as an analogue audio soundwave.

I am using kickstarter due to the significant up front costs of creating the sound player electronics and installation framing issues. 

The works are already in the planning stage and technical issues have been resolved. 

Painting starts very soon and the conversion of image to sound will be commencing in July.

Kickstarter funding is to allow the electronics and the framing to be completed for a solo exhibition I have planned at the LCB Depot in Leicester in November 2018.

Risks and challenges

I am making these regardless, the exhibition date is confirmed and I am a driven artist. So I guess the risks are that I will have to go without any creature comforts and possibly a little less food in the lead up to the exhibition, but funded or not these are going to be created. It would just be nice to do it with a bit of support that is hopefully a bit of fun and or a way of people owning some of the completed works.

I have had the idea for years and this is the first opportunity I have had to realise my vision/audio project.
