Blue-Yellow-Red is a responsive audiovisual installation and performance piece where an individual interacts with beams of light to create their own trans-media experience. There are three distinct movements to the project: Blue, Yellow & Red. Each has its own visual composition, distinct interactive framework and musical score. Abstract video and generative animations were combined with original music, composed and performed by Hunsinger on English Horns, Vietnamese oboe, Soprano saxophones, Irish whistles, found percussion and upright bass.
This project was inspired by Kandinsky's writings on synesthesia and coincide with a major retrospective of his work at the Frist Center, Fall 2014.
