Tim Bavington: Turning Music into Tactile Art
Tim Bavington: Turning Music into Tactile Art

Listen
AIR DATE: March 21, 2012

Most people hear music, but in Tim Bavington's case, he sees it.  The artist turned Aaron Copland's "Fanfare for the Common Man" into a row of multi-colored steel pipes for the Smith Center.  He's done the same thing with paintings in the past - coordinating the 12-tone music scale with his 12-color array for songs by The Rolling Stones.  Tim Bavington talks about turning music into art, his past New York exhibits, and how to gain international attention while based in Las Vegas.
