Synesthesia X1 - 2.44
“Synesthesia X1”—a synesthetic experience device like no other, created by the Synesthesia Lab. Letting go of your body on this device equipped with 44 vibrating actuators makes you feel as if you’re wrapped in a world of sounds, lights and vibrations. Your consciousness is honed as you naturally become a part of the flow. For the X1, we collaborate with sound artist evala (See by Your Ears) who introduces a new musical experience where your body itself becomes the medium.

evala (See by Your Ears)
Sound artist, Musician. Born 1976 in Kyoto, Japan. Has been creating edgy works of electronic music, and exploring music experience with the use of 3D sound system as new instruments. He shows “spatial music” as a new way of composition based on his primary project “See by Your Ears,” which suggests how sound particles bounce and billow in a completely dark space. In the project, he exhibited his main piece as “Octyon Megalotis”(Sonar+D Spain, 2017) “Our Muse” (ACC, Korea 2018), a spatial audio experience collaborated with Sonic Surf VR of Sony “Acoustic Vessel Odyssey”(SXSW, Austin 2018).
