Roy G Biv – The App that Turns Colour Into Music
The app Roy G Biv demonstrates what it would be like to experience synesthesia, a neurological phenomenon that causes our different senses to join, which results in mixed sensations when perceiving a stimulus. For instance, a synesthete can see a word and feel a particular taste or hear a song and feel its touch.
For this app, Glander focused on the sonic perception of colour, one of the most common types of synesthesia. This synth app retrieves colour data from your device’s camera and converts this information into an 8-note synth.
So if you’re wondering whether your lunch sounds better than it tastes, get Roy G Biv and experience the world in a different way.
