COLOURING SOUNDSCAPES


by Anna Frants and Alexandra Dementieva
Sound installation
Cyland MediaLab, 2014


Colouring Soundscapes is a site-specific installation by artists Alexandra Dementieva and Anna Frants, produced by CYLAND MediaArtLab. This work was influenced by brain research on Chromesthesia or sound-to-color synesthesia is in which heard sounds automatically and involuntarily evoke an experience of color.

Yet synesthesia occurs in one in twenty people, and is even more common among artists. One famous synesthete was novelist Vladimir Nabokov, who insisted as a toddler that the colors on his wooden alphabet blocks were “all wrong.” His mother understood exactly what he meant because she, too, had synesthesia.

Visitors are invited to listen to the sound and musical composition, created and developed on the basis of scientific research of color, by Frants and Dementieva.

Courtyard with trees around the perimeter, on each one of which is fixed one audio speaker with integrated in it a MP3 player. They are all directed toward the center, where there is a sculpture of the chairs.

Sound is activated when participant sit down on corresponding color chair in relaxed outdoor environment.
