In a creative blending of sense experiences, students in UT Dallas’ (ATEC) program will present their soundscapes to go with works at the Dallas Museum of Art.  Students in Dr. Frank Dufour’s Sound Design for Interactive Applications course were commissioned by Nicole Stutzman, director of learning partnerships with schools and the community at the museum, to compose soundscapes or auditory translations for a selection of paintings from the DMA’s permanent collection.

This collaboration marks the second time ATEC students have been invited to create sound-design projects inspired by paintings, sculptures, and other art objects at the DMA and to present them at the museum with the actual art that inspired them. This upcoming presentation will be held in conjunction with the DMA’s Late Nights program, held on the third Friday of each month, when the museum is open until midnight. Students and Frank Dufour will explain the various options chosen to “translate” art into sounds and music.
