Humanity has been fascinated by the sensory connection between hearing and seeing since time immemorial. Students from various grades of the bachelor program Graphic and Information Design addressed this fascination and the visual interpretation of music in a series of introductory seminars. The students’ favorite songs were broken down, analyzed, and transformed into pictorial worlds according to the rules and principles of visual design. Also, acoustic patterns were translated into scripts and shapes in the form of an exploratory perceptual game. The students have created an accessible installation that enables visitors to the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK to experience their findings. Sketches, posters, and animations collide with the process and the results, creating a multisensory overall image.
