Gray Sounds

Gray Sounds is an exploration into the novel uses of 3D models for use in 3D generated dynamic soundscapes. Taking an archival objects point cloud data from photogrammetry, each point of the model is converted into notational value to produce a composition for use in a soundscape which aims to re-present the object for a non-visual audience. This develops the use potential of 3D models and challenges histories of predominantly visual based cultural heritage. These soundscapes have been developed for inclusion in an interactive application acting as a soundscape library, Gray Sounds. Focusing on 2 pieces of furniture which tell the extraordinary tale of Glasgow great Alasdair Gray’s life and work through their rich contextual and visual histories, please enjoy Lanark Trunk and Plan Chest below…
