Sounding Images

The Barber’s art works as you’ve never heard them before…

As part of their Sounding Images module, University of Birmingham music students have created new electroacoustic pieces inspired by works in the Barber collection.

Listen to four paintings in the gallery, including the Henri Matisse loan ‘Landscape in Corsica’, on this audio tour, and experience these visual works from another perspective.
