CONCRETE PLAYGROUND: What Music Looks Like as an Object

German artist Martin Klimas is painting with sound, endeavouring to answer the question: ‘what does music look like?’

Klimas put his idea into practice by splattering paint on a scrim, placed over a speaker while playing music. By turning the volume up, the paint colourfully vibrates off the scrim allowing Klimas to seize these moments as photographs.

Through this series, Klimas has captured what music would look like as a physical object. Taking over 6 months and 1000 photographs to create, music from the likes of Miles Davis, Kraftwerk and Steve Reich and Musicians was featured.

It makes you wonder what it would look like to have your favourite song framed.
