Color Play fosters synesthesia by translating color to sound.
Louise and I set out to explore the relationship between color and sound, and make something that would spark the same curiosity in others. After much research, we chose to map the 8 colors of the spectrum with the 8 notes of the major C scale. We decided to create a record player-like toy that would allow a user to compose sound by rearranging colored wedges. With extended play, the user begins to internalize this relationship and may experience mild synesthesia.
