Sound/Art is an ongoing collaboration between Dave and Topaz Pauls, a life model and artist in which life drawing and music meet.

Microphones are placed on drawing boards, artist’s fingers and near the life model. The sounds of pencils and charcoal scraping and scratching, paper swhooshing, erasers rubbing and the model breathing is manipulated in real time to create an immersive soundscape that is played back to the artists.

Everyone involved is a performer and participant. The audio is never the same twice and varies from intense pointilist textures to sweeping ambient drones.
