Voice Art Gallery

Custom Sound Wave Art

Acoustic Art

To the rest of the world, it’s an abstract print of graphic wave patterns. To those in the know, it’s a personal message, spoken aloud and rendered as a work of art.

Brian Curfman, the founder of Voice Art Gallery, was inspired to create art from voice recordings after he made an e-card with an audio message for his wife and noticed how interesting the sound waves looked. Brian started making custom prints of sound recordings
for his family and friends, and his wife encouraged him to grow the artistic pastime into a business so anyone could turn words into art.

Voice Art Gallery makes it easy. First, you record a message using a tool on Voice Art Gallery’s website, or you can upload your own audio file. Up to four words is a typical message length, though you can opt to record more (the fewer words you record, the more detail you’ll see in the sound waves). Next, you choose a size, color scheme, and framing option, and then preview a design proof before finalizing the artwork.

Voices are like fingerprints, so no two prints are alike. Displayed on a wall, the sound waves can be a visual reminder of a message from a loved one, an inspirational quote, and special occasions (baby’s first words, a proposal). There’s no text on the artwork, so the message stays as private as you want it to.

    I have a privacy-related question. When submitting a clip, can you or your employees actually listen to it? Or is it automatically processed into the soundwave image?

    @ Mike Hi Mike, that is a great question. We have a very strict privacy policy when it comes to the recordings and artwork. Only a couple of people have access to the recordings. Each of your works of art are touched by a human not computer generated. The only artwork we share is when customers send us a picture of their artwork and ask us to post on our Facebook Page or our Shared Voice Art board on Pinterest.

    @ Mike - We can vouch for their stance on keeping your messages private. While putting this piece together we wanted to know what the funniest/most interesting thing they've ever recorded was and they wouldn't tell us citing their privacy policy.
