A digital sound experiment to generate user-based imagery by playing a series of tones to the listeners for them to visually interpretate.
This Experiment saw the 'Sonification' of Primary and Secondary colours, turning their binary into digital sound. These Sounds were played to an online audience via social media and the were asked to use a digital tool to draw their interpretation of what they see in their minds
By using an image of colours fed into audio editing software they digital sound of the colour spectrum was produced. This colour spectrum was played to online users via facebook and they were asked to use a digital drawing tool to visualise what the sounds produced in their minds.
This followed on from the research in Synaesthesia - the union of senses and combination of touch, sight, taste, hearing and smell. This Project foucused on sight and sound trough sound and image. The aim of this experiment is to prove the synergy between sound and image and that people can correlate sound with basic visual elements such as colour.
Synaesthesia Extract and Case Study:
Extract on Synaesthesia from 'Design Report 2014 Part I & II' and Synaesthseia Case Study ' Synaesthesia: In Virtual Sound'
Synaesthesia on Behance:
Colour in a Binary Language
By breaking images down into binary code and BMP file format, they can be read by Audio
software i.e C-Edit Pro.
This investigation sampled primary and secondary colours - blue, red, yellow, purple, orange, green (See Appendix 1 of Synaesthesia Extract and Case Study) and played the sounds of colour to the listener with a blank screen.
The listener had to visualise and draw their interpretation of the sound.
