“Colors may be mutually related like musical concords, like those concords be mutually proportionate.” Aristotle strongly believed that a definite physical relationship exists between light and sound, and that each note in the musical scale has a definite color. 

Even though scientists have disproved this theory, the Color Music idea still inspires artists to bring an unusual collaboration between light and sound. 

 

AS long, as many artists have been working on color music, Oskar Fischinger brought it to a different dimension, fulfilling his interest in animated abstract films. 

The kaleidoscopic light work Neolastoscope resulted from research into the history of the color organ. This instrument was developed in the late 19th century, fueled by the dream of making visual music: flowing modulations of light, shapes and colors. The color organ’s heyday was in the 1920s when Bauhaus acolyte Ludwig Hirschfeld-Mack composed his Farbenlichtspiele and Thomas Wilfred built the Clavilux.

Neolastoscope is a contemporary follow-up to those early forms of light art. Inside the projector, a combination of transparent plastic templates and polarization filters create a layered-fractured light, allowing Munnik to create a hypnotic universe.

If Oskar Fischinger would have come to see Matthijs Munnik's artwork, he would say the same as he did about his An Optical Poem (1938) composition, “To most of us, music suggests definite mental images of forms and color.”

“The picture you are about to see is a novel, scientific experiment its object is to convey these mental images in visual form”.
