a little girl couldn’t speak. so we listened.

unspoken symphony was created for all those who struggle to express themselves verbally. Inspired by a little girl who can’t speak, it transforms artwork into an original melody, giving the world a chance to communicate and connect with loved ones like never before.

Watch a video about the story that inspired Unspoken Symphony

“It’s not easy to get to know someone who can’t talk.”

Tim, Riley’s dad

It began with a girl named Riley and a commitment to understanding the challenges families face. Riley has Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, tuberous sclerosis complex, and severe cognitive impairment. She’s never been able to speak. During an interview, Riley’s dad told us, “It’s not easy getting to know someone who can’t talk. You slow down. It makes you appreciate the little things.” His words inspired the idea for unspoken symphony. We learned that many families, like Riley’s, turn to art and music as a form of self‑expression, including those with loved ones who struggle to express themselves verbally.

Whether through music therapy or as a way to create something together as a family, music and art are universal languages that speak to us all. unspoken symphony offers a unique way to bridge the two, creating a symphony of sound that gives voice to a resilient community.

how does it work?

unspoken symphony is a software that was built specifically to turn artwork into melodies, and each melody is as unique as the artwork itself, creating a sound that never existed before!

The technology behind unspoken symphony was created from scratch for the community. This breakthrough image-recognition technology analyzes artwork and converts it into a unique melody by creating a connection between visual lines and music notes—not just inspired by the art, but composed by it—line by line, note by note.

First, you upload your artwork. A photo or scan of any art will work. The software detects the edges of each shape, then adds a music staff over the artwork and identifies where the lines intersect. Points plotted based on those lines become music notes ready to play! Within seconds, the software creates a video so you can listen to your artwork and watch the notes animate over it. Finally, you can submit your artwork to the gallery, and we’ll send you a copy of your MP4 video file and sheet music to keep and share! It’s truly an experience unlike anything out there and a chance to hear a sound that never existed before.
