Painting in Sound

Documentary on a collaboration at the National Gallery between wildlife sound recordist Chris Watson, students from Ravensbourne College of Art and Design, professional musicians and sounds artists. The project began with audio guides for paintings selected by the artists, and then developed into an event involving a live sound mix in the gallery to accompany a tour of the paintings with an art historian. NATURE uses these events to explore how painters use a range of techniques to excite the viewers senses; not only the visual sense, but the senses of smell, touch and perhaps most poignantly, hearing.
