A film and system based on the idea that instead of light bouncing back at us from objects (thus giving the appearance of colour), these waves were infact sound waves. The score was composed by finding the corresponding wavelength of sound for specific colours, picked out from the environment. By using mathematics as a translating tool between the mediums of light and sound, each colour sings its own pitch, creating a palette of sound colours.
For example, Violet = 440Nm = Musical note A = 440KHz
