Primary Tones is a multi-sensorial installation which challenges the idea of perception and spatial connectivity through a symbiotic association of colour and sound. Much like music, colour has the power to evoke emotions and conjure unique memories. As kids we are taught that primary colours (red, yellow and blue) are the building blocks of our visual world, so they have been chosen as the starting place for this process. Each of these individual colours will be used to create their own portion of the installation through coloured illuminations. Additionally, three local sound artists/musicians will each respond to one of the colours by creating a separate audio track uniquely inspired by the chosen hue. These 3 unique audio creations will then be further metabolized into a visual and spatial installation focused around light and spatial typologies. These collaborative outputs culminate in an installation with 3 unique audio, visual and organizational experiences resulting in what we are defining as ‘tones’.
