Synaesthesia artwork surrounds the visitors with sounds and colours that respond to their performance and that are based on the synesthetic theory, with particular reference at Scriabin's association of colour and music.
The audience is invited to speak into a set of microphones; the system captures all the sounds performed and uses them to seed an AI engine for creating a new soundscape in real time, on the base of a custom music knowledge repository.
This art work allows viewers to become active participants in creating multisensory computer-mediated experiences, with the aim of investigating the potential for creative forms of inter-authorship.
