Through these explorations, I explored the idea of turning color into music in an objective code. Every not on the sheet music of Gymnopedie #1 by Erik Satie was turned into a specific color depending on the note, octave and duration of the note. Every note(Do, Re, Mi Fa…) has a specific hue. Every Ocatave has a specific brighness( 1: 0, 8:100).

Here is the end result… enjoy.


In this second variation, all the color were given the same opacity and put on top of each other to create a single bar that transmits the music.
