Synesthesia

Concept and Design: John-Paul Pochin

Fabrication: John-Paul Pochin, Mark Soperman

Programming: John-Paul Pochin

Electronics: John-Paul Pochin, Douglas Sinclair

This project was inspired by a conversation with local composer Zeb Wulff. Zeb explained that a number of famous composers (and more recently 'Lorde') have a condition known as Synesthesia where senses are mixed to varying degrees. For some composers there is an association between music and colour. Do we all have at least emotional relationship with music – Do the different lamps and coloured lights represent different emotions ? What notes or chords should each of the lamps represent?

Hardware:

16 x Lamps

Addressable LED Strands (320 LEDs in total)

Wemos (Arduino like Microcontroller)

Electronic Keyboard
