Mountain Melodies is an art project that merges two senses: sight and sound. 

It is a based on a series of photos from my travels. Each mountainous landscape has its own distinctive character. Its own voice that needed to be heard. 

The idea is simple: superimpose the 5-line musical staff on top of the landscape and turn every contour of its outline into a musical note. Each note’s duration is dictated by the space between the peaks: the bigger the space, the longer the note. That way, every single picture creates a unique melody.
 

I teamed up with Sarah AlencarAnewta C and Mariana Carvalho. who brought their musical talent and expertise to the project. Sarah turned the melodies into musical pieces. And Anewta and Mariana co-composed and recorded them. The full sheet music is available for download.

Prints are available for purchase here.
