Chromaticaster offers a new interpretation of light organs which explore different levels of synesthetic correspondences.
The notes on the keyboard are associated with colours and objects that appear in the viewer. These three-dimensional shapes generate the illusion of proceeding from an infinitely distant sound source, they act as a visual representation of the movement of sound through space.
Chromaticaster transforms a classic TV and a keyboard, into an interactive controller of musical & optical illusion.
Historical Light Organs, include Mary Hallock Greenewalt’s Sarabet, where the correspondence between colour & sound depended on the interpreter, or Thomas Wilfred’s Lumia, which presented silent light compositions in motion.
