Martin Klimas (b.1971, Germany) - What does music look like?
Like a 3-D take on Jackson Pollock, the latest work by the artist Martin Klimas begins with splatters of paint in fuchsia, teal and time green, positioned on a scrim over the diaphragm of a speaker. Then the volume is turned up. For each image, Klimas selects music - typically something dynamic and percussive, like Karlheinz Stockhausen, Miles Davis or Kraftwerk - and the vibration of speakers seds the paint aloft in patterns that reveal themselves through the lens of his Hasselblad. For this series, Klimas spent but 1000 shots to produce the final images from his studio in Düsseldorf, Germany. (by Julie Bosman, The New York Times Magazine)
