L.A. Times Central Court

For Correspondances (after Charles Baudelaire), Ecuadorian artist Oscar Santillán devised a simple data visualization system that allows an opera singer to read the cracks of a building as musical notation, transforming crevices and fissures in the architecture into sound. Santillán is one of the participating artists in A Universal History of Infamy at LACMA.

Correspondances (after Charles Baudelaire) was first performed in Paris in 2013. Soprano Juliana Snapper will perform.
