Colour and Music Sensory Space

“I felt I could breathe the colours”…”like being wrapped in a rainbow” – participant

The Colour/Music Sensory Space is a joyful, unique and immersive space where visitors can create their own environment of colour and sound. It is made up of a unique range of special sensors, that can be adapted to each visitors needs and requirements.

The sensors are linked to LED lights and a specially-created software for making music, these are activated by the individual moving their head, hands and/or feet. Created and controlled by the participants, this installation enables everyone to create and immerse themselves in their own world of colour and sound. Colour/Music Sensory Space has been developed through Eye Music funding and research with composer David Stevens.
