Martin Klimas Captures Music Painting

We hear music and we can feel its vibrations, but what does it look like? German-based Martin Klimas finds out by putting paint in a transparent scrim over a speaker diaphragm and turning up the volume. The paint colors splash around in time with the musical beats and Klimas records the results. With a playlist that included everyone from Miles Davis to Karlheinz Stockhausen, he spent around six months and took about 1,000 shots to create the series.
