What Does Music Look Like?

In these extremely vibrant, abstract photographs, a series entitled What Does Music Look Like?, Martin Klimas focused on the fluidity of paints as they translate into music. The artist shows us what we might see if the sounds of music were visual patterns of dancing notes right before our eyes. To create each image, Klimas poured bright oranges, teals, lime greens, and yellows onto the surface of a speaker and blasted energetic music by artists like Miles Davis and Pink Floyd. As the paints jumped, danced, and splattered to the rhythms, Klimas took more than 1,000 shots to capture the motion through a Hasselblad camera. Each stunning image is aptly named after the song and performer that sent the liquids into these playful and dynamic visual patterns.
