Sadly by your side is not just an album, but a synesthetic application; a processing and remixing tool where each song can be endlessly transformed depending on the images you focus on with your camera.
Using custom built software, the visual input is converted into a new image painted with red, blue and black.
Each of these colors directly affects elements of the music. In the end, each track is unique, with a remodeled harmony, melody and rhythm, constructed as a direct result of the environment captured by the camera.
To listen to the song in its original form, focus the app on one of the eight images available in the book Sadly by your side. They contain the exact amount of red, blue and black to produce the right harmony, melody and rhythm.

If you leave is the title of the music video promoting Sadly by your side, the debut album of Davide Cairo a.k.a. Edisonnoside, a researcher in Fabrica’s music team. Completely created using 3D and 2D animations, the video is a travel through unreal landscapes, real emotions and distances, bringing back memories and lost moments to life.
