SOUND OF LIGHT

“Half of the human brain is devoted directly or indirectly to vision”
Mriganka Sur, Professor of Neuroscience, MIT

Imagine hearing the colours you perceive.

SOUND of LIGHT is a synesthetic sculpture which interprets and dynamically transforms sunlight into audio frequencies. It is a site specific installation designed for the former music pavilion in Hamm, Germany, which was built in 1912.

A high-quality digital camera mounted on the top of the structure films the sky and divides it into six colours – RGB and CMY. The six hanging, coloured columns of the pneumatic structure – which stand for the primary RGB (red/green/blue) and secondary CMY (cyan/magenta/yellow) colour models – are designed to receive different frequencies and convert them from visible to audible sensory input. A series of woofers is fixed directly on the bottom of each column and convert the whole architecture into a giant vibrating loudspeaker.

SOUND of LIGHT is a composition of hue, saturation, and light. By mixing sound and architecture, the audience experience a unique oneiric reality through the superimposition of colours, shapes, sounds and vibrations. Visitors can also discover their own concert by changing their point of view – an individual spectrum.

SOUND of LIGHT is a joint project of Marco Barotti and Plastique Fantastique for Urban Lights Ruhr 2014 in Hamm.
