When Music is Seen and not Heard

What do you get when Art and Science shake hands and heartily greet each other? The answer is simple: innovation. There are many who agree that Art and Science are two sides of the same coin and that you cannot truly have one without the other. Artist Marco Fusinato is one such believer who has taken abstract art to a whole new level with his “Mass Black Implosion” collection.

Fusinato has applied mathematical transformations to sheet music delineating experimental compositions and literally made you “see” music. The artist has simply added a new dimension to the musical notes, which were, by themselves alluringly abstract. By line drawing over existing scores of avant garde music, Fusinato shows us what “free noise” would look like.

As a result, you find sound waves and equations staring back at you when you look at Fusinato’s Mass Black Implosion. No, this is not a case of synesthesia, but simply a testament to what the human mind can do! Those viewing Fusinato’s collection, can not only hear the musical compositions but they also have an idea of what the sound they hear would actually “look” like.

So when you now look at a piece of sheet music, would you find notes leaping out at you? Let us know!
