Art & Sounds

From 30 April 2021

Feel the rhythm of art at the Musée Jenisch Vevey
At a time when concert halls remain closed, the Musée Jenisch Vevey and the Montreux Jazz Artists Foundation have partnered to offer a new experience, where visual arts and music come together in a unique dialogue.
Art & Sounds can be enjoyed from 30 April 2021, UNESCO’s International Jazz Day. Bring your smartphone, put on your headphones and step inside the permanent collection of paintings at the Musée Jenisch Vevey. As you come close to one of the art pieces selected for Art & Sounds, snap the QR code to start the music. Twenty-eight tracks composed by contemporary Swiss musicians are gathered into a series of dialogues proposed by Stéphanie-Aloysia Moretti, art historian and artistic director of the Montreux Jazz Artists Foundation, to whom the Musée Jenisch Vevey has given carte blanche to carry out this project.

Let yourself go in a world where painted landscapes come alive through the rhythm of music and become soundscapes. This multisensory experience of two artforms intermingling provides an astonishing moment of art appreciation, where surface morphs into space and space into imagination.
All tracks of Art & Sounds are available on YouTube, which you can freely access using the museum’s wifi.
