Sound theory
concertina clacker book in box  2016

Rhythm, melody, tone, harmony: these are descriptions of sound according to music  theory. But the perception of music can be so much more than these fundamental elements; it can evoke shape, colour, motion, emotion. By contrasting the plain typeset pages from a book that analyses listening to music with flipside pages of pure colour, this clacker-board concertina looks at the idea of synaesthesia—where the stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic experiences in another sensory or cognitive pathway.
