Tankian Brings Eye For Sound, Group Exhibit To Auckland


For the first time ever in New Zealand, Serj Tankian (System of a Down) presents Eye For Sound, a cutting-edge fusion of art, music and technology, featuring artists and musicians including Bic Runga and Boh Runga, and Serj Tankian himself.

Using optical recognition via your smartphone or tablet, each artwork unlocks a virtual treasure trove of music and interactive content. Proudly brought to you by Asahi, Eye for Sound is an unmissable art event, held in the unique environment of Wynyard Quarter’s Silo Six.

Tankian states, “I’m aiming to have people SEE the music and HEAR the art. Using a modern app, Eye For Sound, we’re able to take Kandinsky’s Synesthesia to a whole new level."

“Living in New Zealand a good part of the year, I am lucky to have befriended really cool musicians and visual artists, some of whom will be participating in the group. Everyone is excited about the prospect of building a bridge between visual art and music and showing off pieces never seen before.”
