The Sound of Art

1

We are familiar with the idea that music has colours or moods but where is the sound in a painting?

Alice Springs violinist Dian Booth has a special gift for sensing sound in visual art and takes her instrument into galleries to create “spontaneous compositions” in response to pictures.

In this programme, she recalls how she was first inspired by Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition and talks about some of the paintings and sculptures she has “played”.

Broadcast: Tuesday 8 October 2013 at 5.30pm on 8CCC Community Radio 102.1FM

Repeated: Following Friday at 9am and Sunday at 5.00pm

Producers:  Joy Taylor and Helen Womack
