ABOUT sonique perception
One might say an artwork cannot be understood, but it can be heard. In this spirit this Audio Tour Guide uses music in it's broadest sense as an additional tool to experience the exhibition. It is an attempt to escape the boundaries of conventional art education and to explore the full potential of bringing together musicians and visual artists.
The spoken factual information usually provided by audio guides is exchanged with musical interpretations – composed only for this purpose – applying music as an universal language to approach the visual object from a different angle. Instead of channeling the visitor's perspective with a set of data tailored to the specific artwork, the intention now is to appeal to one's perception on an emotional level. It is an offer to the visitor, an impulse to increase the intensity of everyone's individual experience throughout the exhibition.
