Colourful Music

Exploring music as a visual language through colour, pattern and shape.

About the project

'Colourful Music' is a concept that combines visual and audible media, and explores our potential to interpret music as a visual language. The aim of the concept was to introduce an easy, visually stimulating system that teaches musical elements using simple interactive exercises.


I brought the concept to life through an immersive website. Using colourful stickers on the keyboard, and linking it with a simple yet intuitive interface, a visually stimulating platform for learning the basics of musical notation was created. Additional experiments were created with different instruments, as well as using the system to create large-scale posters of musical pieces such as Mozart’s Turkish March, even the Mario Bro’s theme tune.
