“Synaesthesia”  – a project of  Tatyana Kolganova and Olesya Rostovskaya  is a tribute to Eugene Murzin who build his first  ANS synthesizer in Moscow in 1958. This year we are celebrating 100 year anniversary of this great man who  realized the idea   to melt together composing, performing and recording of music.
ANS “reads” graphic image on a glass pane and converts it into sound. The conversion of images into sound is not a circus, not a show, not the external effect but the basic constructive method of ANS synthesizer.
Tatiana Kolganova is  a graphic artist and she proposed no ANS her specially designed images.
Olesya Rostovskaia as a  composer wrote “note” score for ANS.
Both artists produced picturesque imageries and powerful sound.
At the exhibition in Music Culture (Glinka) Museus in Moscow six scores are exhibited in six light boxes, Three  were created by graphic  artist, the three – by the  composer.
