Splice and Playtronica Present: ColorTune (A Synesthetic Color to Sound Experience)

ColorTune is a whimsical installation that converts colored shapes into sound triggers on specially modified turntables which feature sensors instead of needles.

The piece invites participants to play with color, shape, buttons and the rotation speed of the turntables to easily create complex combinations of sounds and rhythms in real time. By changing the way they normally might engage with sound and music, attendees enjoy a moment of unadulterated play and creative discovery.

ColorTune was created by the artist collective Playtronica in collaboration with the online music production community Splice, who will provide all the sounds used in the installation.
