Sound Explosions with Martin Kilmas

If there's one thing we love, it's photographers taking their art and combining it with science to make something magnificent. That's exactly what German photographer Martin Kilmas is doing with his Sound Explosions series. From Martin's site:

"This series of photographs should be considered as a continuation of Klimas' previous work, Sonic Sculptures. Klimas is still concerned with finding out what music looks like, all the while trying to make the process of musical production visible. For Sound Explosions, he asked several musicians to work on short sound sequences, so called patches, using analogue synthesizers made between 1930 and 1990. Klimas shows those synthesizers with all their wires and cables to give people an idea of the complexity of the sounds he is working with. He then replays the patches on his set, using pigments in place of liquid colors this time. He puts up the volume and lets the colors explode."

You can see a making of video and the finished photos below. You can also hear the musical sequences used on Martin's Vimeo channel.
