‘Soundscapes’ has commissioned musicians and sound artists to select a painting from the collection and compose a new piece of music or sound art in response. Immersive and site-specific, the experience encourages visitors to ‘hear’ the paintings and ‘see’ the sound.
Soundscapes’ is part of the ‘National Gallery Inspires’ programme of exhibitions. Drawn from the National Gallery collection, the exhibitions take a fresh view of National Gallery paintings. In this instance, we have merged paintings with commissioned music and sound art from a broad range of artists.
