Eye for Sound |See Music, Hear Art

June 6, 2015 - September 27, 2015

EYE FOR SOUND was born from the desire to create an immersive musical experience; the music is meant to be as tied to the artwork as the paint on the canvas. The free EYE FOR SOUND app provides a unique artistic platform for the synthesis of physical artwork and musical expression. By exploring the simultaneous connection between art and music, the visitor to See Music, Hear Art will experience a one of a kind stimulation of the senses. This fusion of art and music is accessed through your smartphone or tablet device. Using optical recognition, the physical artwork unlocks a virtual “treasure chest" of music and user interactive content. The artwork provides the portal by which users access this new form of artistic and musical interaction and exploration.

Participating artist/musicians include: Serj Tankian, System of a Down; Tom Morello and Scott Hepburn, Rage Against the Machine; CANTSTOPGOODBOY; Michael Dee; Daniel P. Carter; Joseph Arthur; Shannon Novak; and the Bay Area’s Colin Frangicetto, Circa Survive; and Leonardo Cuervo.

The exhibition is made possible with support from the following sponsors: The Town of Los Gatos, EYE FOR SOUND, Art Duet, Astro Gaming, Elizabeth Reigal and Donors to The NUMU Annual Campaign.
