Synesthetic is a music visual where the tempo and melody of a song inform the motion and colors of the design to reflect my personal experience of synesthesia.
In the concept phase of this project, I designed a survey to see how other people responded to music visually. The responses led to two paths of interpreting music — defined as literal and figurative listeners. The literal group listened for words to illustrate their visual, while the figurative group designed based on a feeling.
Synesthetic is a take on the figurative perception of music, interpreting color, shape and motion based on the feel and progression of the song.
