Rainbow Resonance is a computer vision installation that generates colors and musical sounds of the equivalent sound frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum, according to the motion of the participator. The audience is encouraged to participate in a playful performance that engages the body to produce colorful images and sound resonances through simple movements. Anyone can potentially create a personal experience within the installation. The color scheme is based on the visible light spectrum and is also inspired by the chakras.
Light wavelengths are transposed 40 octaves below, into audible sound frequencies and mapped to an 8 tone musical scale based on Pythagorean mathematics. The resulting eight-tone scale corresponds to the 'white keys' on the piano, and represents the seven predominant colors of the light spectrum.
An all encompassing composition of the frequencies occurs when the arms extend upwards towards the sky. The movement is reminiscent of the exercise 'Carrying the Moon' in Chi Kung, an ancient Chinese method of healing.
