Synesthesia is the transference of one sense to another, such as seeing sounds. I have a theory, that has been provisionally working out, that during times of flux in the senses, such as when the possibilities of a new medium are first being fully explored, synesthesia becomes more prevalent. If you can see what I am saying, you have one version of it, though cogsci types try to seperate metaphors from the actual “affliction.” For some reason, it usually maps sound onto vision, but I have instead mapped vision onto sound with PRISMM.
Here is another video of PRISMM, this time it is just me. If you missed out last time, this is a max/msp/jitter patch I wrote that makes music from motion. Up and down is pitch, left and right changes the mix of the two synths. Let me know what you think!
Synesthesia is a favorite topic of mine. It is the transference of one sense to another
