This project was done with a graduate class at The University of Texas at Dallas and the Dallas Museum of Art in May of 2009. Pieces of art were selected by the museum. Students chose pieces that interested them to write a soundscape. I was fortunate enough to do ten soundscapes. I believe that soundscapes add to art. Sometimes you “hear” something that you may not have “seen” looking at a painting. Give this a try. Go through this gallery of art with your sound muted. Go through it again with you sound turned up. Does it make a difference in how you view the piece?
