Concept

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.

Chromaticast transforms a classic TV and a keyboard, into an interactive controller of musical & optical illusion.
