The Melodic Scribe

How can you make music visible? Jihye Kang and Victor Gonzalez explored this question and developed the Melodic Scribe, which drops paint on  porcelain plates according to the melodies and notes of the music played.


Every platte pattern is unique like the music is with every different musician.
