Mountain Melodies is an art project that has the purpose of merging two sensory pathways: vision and audition. After curating a personal collection of landscape photography and choosing mountains as a visual subject, this project aims to explore the unique melodies the diverse images chant to anyone who looks at it.
By exploring the theory of music, the synesthetic idea is simple: To place an imaginary music staff (an arrangement of five parallel lines present on music sheets) on top of the mountain chains present on the photos and turn every mountain peak into a music note. The duration of each note is dictated by the space between peaks: the bigger the space, the longer the note resonates. This way, every single picture creates an unique melody.
