Seeing Sound is an interactive sound and image experience. As audience going to a concert, visitors have the opportunity to be a part of an abstract film of sound, shape, and colour. Employing the same title as Mary Ellen Bute’s series of abstract animation films, the project produce an abstract animation film of audience generated sounds visually represented through a constructed colour and shape system, influenced by colour music theories of Alexander Scriabin and Wassily Kandinsky, and inspired by the animation technique of Norman McLaren.
