A selection of the Barber’s most iconic paintings – as you’ve never heard them before!

Inspired by works in the gallery, University music students have created new electroacoustic pieces as part of the Sounding Images module.

Their selection includes works by Claude, Dahl, Magritte and Auerbach – so take an audio tour of the gallery and experience the visual arts from another perspective.
