chromatophonia

Chromatophonia (color-sound) is an on-going investigation into the physics and expression of waves in the form of light and sound. Several formulae and processes were created to superimpose the spectrum of visible light (color) onto the spectrum of audible sound. 

 

A series of oil paintings were made as experimental chromatophonic musical scores.

 

Chromatophonic études were created using PureData software coded to control a piano via MIDI.
