SoundscapesBringing together music and art, Soundscapes sees a number of acclaimed musicians and sound artists create pieces in response to the paintings in the National Gallery, encouraging visitors to 'hear' the paintings and 'see' the sound. DJ, music producer and member of The xx, Jamie xx has chosen Tho Van Rysselberghe's pointillist Coastal Scene while Oscar-winning composer Gabriel Yared has prepared a piece in response to Czanne's Bathers. Other contributors include Turner Prize-winning sound artist Susan Phillipsz OBE, composer Nico Muhly and wildlife programme-maker Chris Watson, who has chosen one of the gallery's most popular works: Akseli Gallen-Kallela's Lake Keitele.

About National Gallery

The National Gallery dominates London's Trafalgar Square with its neo-classical columns and portico designed by William Wilkins adjoining the square on its east side where it has been pedestrianised. Some of the finest examples of European art, ranging from 1260 to 1900, are included among the 2,300 paintings filling its halls and rooms. More about National Gallery
