MUSIC VISION is a research program that aims at re-inventing the way we see music and accelerate music learning. Using synesthesia and the geometric representations of music, we are developing interfaces that help you understand music in a much faster way than the tradition music education system.

ACCELERATE MUSIC LEARNING
Learning music can be very painful and we believe that music theory and notation could need a little bit of help. We are developing an interface that uses simple geometry to express music visually through simple and logical shapes. Music becomes easier and faster to learn.
UNDERSTANDING MUSIC VISUALLY
Using the concept of synesthesia, the idea of representing music through shapes, textures and light effects, we are developing an interactive interface that allows you to see what you play in a geometric way.
We are currently working hard on an education program that helps kids or anyone learn music faster by using music datavisualization and interactive games. WHEN MUSIC IS VISUAL, THEN IT BECOMES LOGICAL! Music can be easily represented by simple mathematical geometric shapes. For instance, music is circular: you have several A, B, C, etc. By convention, we can represent music by a circle that we will call the chromatic circle. By linking notes together, chords and scales become shapes that help understand how music truly work.
IT WORKS! WATCH MY NIECE PLAY HER FIRST NOTES EVER
Watch my niece discovering by herself the pentatonic major scale within 6 minutes through my music datavisualization interface. She is 3.5 years old on the video and has never touched a piano before. The pentatonic major is the first scale you should learn and from which you will be able to develop more complex technics for improvisation in all kind of music: blues, rock, pop, jazz, etc.
We have developed so far 4 functional prototypes that integrate technologies that will be added to the final product: real-time 3D with photorealistic renders, parametric textures, optimised responsiveness, data visualisation, educational workflow, etc.
