About Sound of Colour
One of ArtHouse Jersey’s key roles is to bring together artists who practice different disciplines. Last year we introduced Jason Butler, a celebrated painter who creates figurative and abstract paintings, and Jack Chown, a former winner of Young Musician of the Year who trained at Oxford University, the Royal Academy of Music and Abbey Road Studios, who now works in London composing and producing.
When Jack hears sound, he sees colour. Jason listens extensively to music when creating his work. Working with film artist Todd MacDonald, Jack captured Jason’s movements as he painted and used an algorithm to make it into a piece of music, effectively providing a way for Jason to compose as he paints.
This special collaborative composition was debuted within Jason’s wonderful and evocative exhibition ‘Where Our Shadows Were.’
