“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.
