Interactive Chromesethesia

Synesthesia is a neurological condition that is a blending of the senses. Chromesethesia is sound to color synesthesia, those who experience this perceive a specific color or colors when listening to music. The purpose of this project was to create an interactive piece that demonstrated this. We did this by creating a patch of code in Max that when a color appeared in the webcam would draw that coordinating color and play a melody of notes. The position and motion of the pens also effected the notes played. The purpose was also to create a visual and auditory expeience to bring those without this ability to see it on their own. Mixing between movement in space which creates a form (Lexical synesthesia), sound and color.
