This project concerns the production of a series of "musical paintings", which are paintings carrying speaker arrays behind the canvas. The idea is to approach the visual experience of a painting using sound images. For this, techniques related to sound spatialisation and 3D music are employed. The first work of this series, Collage #1, has been exhibited in 2014 in the UK. This painting utilises recorded sounds to create a virtual scenario, a simulacrum of a forest auditory panorama. Eight sounds are located in different positions around the canvas: two frog sounds, two cicada sounds, two bird sounds, the sound of running water and a synthesized sound to create an additional harmonic ambience. Other musical paintings are currently in production.
