The sound of art

Explore the relationship between music and visual arts through a variety of artworks and compositions.

The sound of art was written in collaboration with the Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO).

This resource takes inspiration from the many and varied links between the visual arts and music through art appreciation and making.

‘The sound of art’ is divided into 9 parts which can be completed as a whole or separately in isolation. Part 9 culminates in an art and music exhibition inspired by Mussorgsky’s ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’. Instructional video links such as this ‘Introduction’ assist in the teaching and learning process.
