Today I soldered an electro-magnetic sound device from LOM electronics. I also lasered a simple case for it. I still have some pcb left, please contact me if you want one.

The word Synestizer is a blend of the word synthesizer (electric signals converted into sounds) and synaesthesia (sensation together). The synestizer is an attempt to sonify the live imagery of a (web-)camera by making colour-values audible in different ways. The idea behind the synestizer is to let visual and audio-input interact to tickle the synapse between your ears and eyes. In many ways visualizers (including screensavers) do this by transforming sound into animated or generated graphics. The synestizer tries to do the opposite as it translates Red, Green and Blue values to sound. For this effect or let’s say „sense“ there are new methods and techniques explored, developed and spread online.

Got chrome or opera browser? Head to and give it a try! You may also check it out on your (powerfull) Android phone/tablet.

This is work in progress. Code is on github.

Game Of Sound

Game Of Sound is an audio visual software which generates algorithmic music based on cellular automata. The name comes from John Conway's famous Game Of Life. The dynamic system of cellular automata is used to generate sounds and visuals at the same time. The unpredictable states of the automata lead to complex and surprising sounds and visuals.

The software interfaces with Open Sound Control (OSC) to other audio software (pure data, max/msp, Reaktor) which does the audio synthesis.

Game Of Sound can be interactively played by one or more performers.

„BLACK CIRCLES“ is an experimental software, developed for nintendo's DS handheld console. It's a mixture of a game, simulation and generative music.

„BLACK CIRCLES“ is evaluating the console as an artistic and playful tool and means of expression. Beyond super mario black circles are part of a simulation and produce disturbing noise. The game can be controlled by touchscreen and motion sensors.


even more fun with ds motion card! (not shown in youtube video..)
