Sonoscopi
Palafrugell, 2019 / Girona, 2019-2020

Artist: Xavi Bové

Kinetic light installation about sound and light waves and human perception

Sonoscopi is a study and analysis around the visual representation of songs. This artistic piece, suggests a reflection on the relation between rhythms, musical notes and colors, taking in mind that all three are the same with just one variable, time.

An accelerated rhythm becomes an acoustic vibration, and therefore it can convert into a musical note; this, accelerated (a few octaves higher), has a connection with the length of the light wave, the colors.

The experiment aims to implicate these concepts through three illuminated balls that will act as a musical note of an imaginary stave, linking rhythms, sounds and colors, creating musical-visual chords from a polyrhythm accelerated simultaneously.
