Martin Klimas

Sonic Sculptures

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 lime 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 the speaker sends the paint aloft in patterns that reveal themselves through the lens of his Hasselblad. Sonic Sculptures is a synaesthetic interplay of sound, shape and color. For this series, Klimas spent about 1,000 shots to produce the final images from his studio in Düsseldorf, Germany.
