    A synæsizer is a device that makes you see what it hears and hear what it sees. Thus, it turns you into a synesthete, just like Kandisky, who could hear music in colours or Nabokov, for which letters would conjure up colours.
    To do so, it is an artificial synesthete in itself: its video system is directly plugged into the audio and vice-versa. If we compare it to a human being, it can hear with its eyes and see with its ears and what it sees alters what it hears, which endlessly alters what it sees...
    Technique
    The technique used here is the "databending", which is a form of "hacking" in the primary meaning of the word. Files or datastreams, whatever their original purpose is, are interpreted as audio files. Raw data often generates raw sounds, this is why Exomène developed a specific interpretation and refining process, partly based on spectrogram's analysis and power spectral density.
    Enough with theory! I wrote a step by step explanation.
    Synesthesia
    Databending does not apply to computers only. Like it's altering the semantics of signs, databending is possible with all symbol systems such as the human brain. When a human brain bends data, it is also synesthesia: union of the senses, etymologically.
    This device is therefore an artificial (multimodal and bidirectional) synesthete, its senses having been melt together. But that quality of being a synesthete is only the consequence of its primary function, which is to generate a synesthetic experience on its user. It's an artificial synesthetic generator, what can be called a synæsizer.

  4. When synaesizer goes glitch: hacking the hacking.

    The synæsizer is a device that makes you see what it hears and hear what it sees. The technique used here is the "databending", which is a form of "hacking" in the primary meaning of the word (more about the synaesizer: vimeo.com/channels/330919)
    Glitches are made by hacking familiar systems, manipulated to create art. Glitch artists reveal a certain soulfulness that emerges when complex streams of information, visual media, and our own lives converge in the chaos of the glitch (more about Glitch Art: networkcultures.org/wpmu/portal/publications/network-notebooks/no-04-the-glitch-momentum/)

    So, we have asked ourselves: what would happen if we glitched the synaesizer? What would happen if we introduced wild glitches into the more controlled ones: the glitches that come from the databending technique?

    And here it is.
    Inception: a glitch within a glitch.

    Now, the synaesizer uses a brand new serie : "Introspectrion" (dorianne-wotton.com/fr/galerie-477-lt-span-style-font-size-12px-gt-introspectrion-lt-span-gt.html).
    Exomène has made some changes to this project, including improvement of sound processing.
