Artist Statement

This is the result of some experimentation I've been doing with some ideas concerning the relationship between color and sound. Where most of my work incorporates some of my drawing, with this I just wanted to play with some simple elements and see what came out on the other end.

The sound is based on the frequency of colors that are used in each piece. The colors in the visible spectrum have a frequency interval that ranges between ~ 430–750 THz, well beyond the range of human hearing (which is approximately 20-20,000 Hz). For the sound, I just started with a sine wave that just used hertz instead of terahertz.

Each animated layer in the (red, orange, green, and blue) is comprised of 10 layers representing 10 octaves of sound. This was achieved by either incrementally dividing or multiplying the numbers by two until they reached their minimum or maximum level within the audible range.
