    Digital Synesthesia
    You don’t need any experience in music or visual art: just come with an open mind, a willingness to try something new, and perhaps a crazy idea or two. We’re going to use software called Max to create our synesthesia art through a series of hands-on experiments. You’ll turn an image of your face into sound, capture it with a microphone and turn it back to a photo again to see what happens. You’ll learn how to remix songs just by waving your hands in front of a computer camera. And along the way, you’ll learn the secrets of how computers understand sound and vision, create new forms of art, and leave with a package of software that will let you continue with your experiments at home.
