Created by Louise Foo and Natasha Dzurny from Introduction to Physical Computing at the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU, Color Play looks like an old school record player except the LP is composed of colourful slices. When put together, the colours are read and sound is produced.
The Color Play user arranges colorful plastic wedges of varying widths to compose a sound loop. Each color represents a pitch and the width of the wedge determines rhythm. The goal is to experience a voluntary feeling of synesthesia hear pitch by seeing color.
The relationship between sound and color has been a curiosity throughout history. The Color Play was originally inspire by Newton, who created a color wheel with corresponding pitches.
