Foundation Musick’s Monument

Vittore Carpaccio, 1510, Angel with LuteSometimes something is just cool. FOUNDATION MUSICK’S MONUMENT is cool. Here is how they describe themselves:

The Stichting Musick’s Monument produces Historical Art Productions, partly in association with scholars from the Chair of Humanities of the University of Amsterdam (UvA). Pictures, music and text are integrated: You will hear music from the same period and the same area of origin as the visual materials; these are supplemented with explanatory text. From this combination evolves something like a Gesamtkunstwerk (a total work of art), a complete new way of digital art presentation.
