Colour Music - Level 4: Upstairs @ The Carriageworks
Produced by: Kelli Zezulka
Colour Music is based on the colour music experiments of the early twentieth century, where a cinema organ was converted to control lighting to accompany music. In this version, however, the lighting will be controlled via a MIDI keyboard, with each key controlling a different light. When a piece of music is played on the keyboard, the lights will change accordingly with the music, as if the pianist were playing the lights. Colour Music can be enjoyed by people of all ages and at least half of the session will include audience members participating in the event. This is suitable for children as well as adults, just as it is suitable for both amateurs and professionals in lighting or music.
