sphinxsix posted a topic in General ForumEver wondered who's the guy responsible for this cover photo and how it was created? The answer is - German photographer Martin Klimas. He is known for his work surrounding high speed photography to capture moments otherwise invisible to the human eye. His project, Sonic Sculptures, enables the viewer to visualize the impact of sound as streams of colorful paint are thrown upward by sound waves from a speaker. After splashing paint on stretched canvas suspended over a speaker, Klimas turns the music up to full volume. As the vibrations from the speaker to throw the paint upwards, the resulting intricate patterns are captured in his high-speed photographs. While each individual photograph is quite interesting, the project becomes truly fascinating when the photographs are compared and the differences in pattern between songs are revealed. Some examples: "Pharaoh's Dance" Miles Davis "On the Run" Pink Floyd "Run Run Run" The Velvet Underground and Nico "Ride of the Valkyries" Richard Wagner "Sex Machine" James Brown "Carmina Burana" Carl Orff "Ascension" John Coltrane In his other project 'Soundworks' Klimas transforms the waves of sound, curious to discover what music would look like if visually manifest again. Assisted by several musicians, Sound Explosions was created partially through short original musical sequences using synthesizers. The work is a series of diptychs allowing the viewer to see the wires, cables, and dials that create these colorful symphonies : (the guy must like audio cables ) You can listen to the musical sequences used in the work as well as a behind the scenes video on Kilmas’ Vimeo channel. As a person interested both in visual art and music I find his work quite intriguing. What do you think, guys? Martin Klimas' site: http://www.martin-klimas.de/en/index.html
