‘Note Drawings’ Photo Series Turns City Skylines Into Musical Notation


Japanese artist Koshi Kawachi has created a interesting series of work that combines photography and music to create an experience, rather than only an aesthetic. Titled Note Drawing the series transposes the silhouettes of city skylines into musical notation. It’s with these notations Kawachi then turns these cityscapes into actual music, which then accompanies the individual pieces.

Viewing online isn’t going to give you the entire experience, which includes looking at the framed compositions with the music playing through headphones. But the above video boils down the experience into a 75 second clip, that ‘plays’ the Sapporo skyline, as photographs and transcribed by Kawachi.
