The Color of the Room plays with the relationship between everyday spaces and the infinite. Technically speaking, a virtual kaleidoscope was built using the Blender 3d animation program and used to manipulate different images by changing its size and shape. The infinite regressions of the kaleidoscope are open to interpretation and remind us of the potential in every moment.
Musically, the piece is comprised of looped piano, synth sounds, and sounds generated by a program called VirtualANS. This program is produced by Zolotov Alexander as an expression of the ideas of the famous Russian composer/pianist Alexandr Nicolaevitch Skryabin. Skryabin theorized a relationship between sound and color; so VirtualANS turns an image into a sound. Thus the sound of the piece is derived from the look and color of the room.
