A beautifully painted portrayed or skilfully composed melody are mediums which unite us, whether or not we have the same language, background or viewpoint.

A new exhibition is set to show the talents of artists with sensory impairments, and how the relationship between music and art can explore how emotions are influenced through music and rhythm, elevating them far beyond what we can articulate.

Barnet's TouchBase centre, support by disability charity Sense, is supporting the exhibition, to be held at the artsdepot in North Finchley on February 1-14.

Using the latest technology, the nine artists, with visual impairments and hearing loss, were able to experience and feel the music through a vibrating back pack which translated the rhythm, pace, and energy of the music.

They took these discoveries and shared their art through a large digital artboard, where they could choose the colours which showed their feelings about the rhythm or mood of the music.

Kirstie Hayward, who works at TouchBase South East, said she was able to see how the art evolved over time, how the artists filled the canvas and interpreted the music.

"Giving the artists the opportunity to combine music and rhythm to invoke feelings and let their imagination take over, was wonderful," she says.

"I can’t wait to see the exhibition and for our artists to see their works on display to the public! I hope visitors find the pieces as inspiring as we do.

"Art is such a fantastic way to express how we feel and these pieces will certainly brighten up any wall!"

MusicART opens at artsdepot, Nether Street, North Finchley, N12 0GA, from February 1-14 from 6-8pm.
