Chromatic Spectrum

Chromatone is an open source research and design project to explore, develop and implement the scientific way of visual music education, communication and performance.

Imagine if we once agree on a standard way to interconnect colors and notes? It will empower our music perception with vision, most humans primary sensory channel, especially in our modern screen time. Why not view music the visual way today? Let's explore 12 notes, 12 colors and infinite space of their possible combinations.

We've discovered complete and coherent Visual Music Language there. It's evolving through further merging colors with notes, rhythms with shapes, intervals with gradients, chords and scales with palettes. And we pave the way for new generations of visual music explorers.

We're creating the Visual Music Theory study, that helps beginners learn complex music concepts in color. Interactive web-apps in the Practice section expand the knowledge and grow deeper music awareness. Those, who want to go beyond personal explorations and get guided educational programs and community learning experience, can become members of Chromatone Academy. And we are just getting started! Also for those, who want to touch and feel the colorful notes we have a cozy Sticker Shop.
