Results & Findings

Findings – “Into the Woods”, Diana Muller

We found some interesting aspects to this painting as two people had very different descriptions of their feelings towards the paintings. One user had a massive background in music and music production while the other had a huge interest in everything visual. This can be reflected within their soundscapes. The musically inclined user gave the sound more “space” while the visual user went for more “chaos”. This “chaos” was achieved by placing many different notes all over the time line resulting in a loud and uncontrolled sound from the soundscape.A large portion of the people who picked this piece were foreign. This statistic was not seen across any of the other art pieces with 35% of the users for “Into the Woods” being foreign.

Findings – “Untitled 1”, Ken Browne

This painting produced very different soundscapes. This was not reflected in the feedback, however, as there were trends found in users feedback from the paintings such as dark, isolation, loneliness and division. These trends did not have any effect on the sounds capes as there was no similarities found in those who used similar words to describe the painting.Upon listening to the soundscapes both on an overall scale and within each category mentioned, no relationships were noticed between the audio pieces. This may have been reflected in the results where on average, users did not fully feel they represented the
feelings of the painting in their soundscapes.
