Color Music – a light assistant for musical compositions
Color and music (light and music) settings are created for simultaneous playback of musical composition and lighting effects. The light effect on the listener may not be synchronous with respect to the music. Thanks to these devices, the music lover significantly enhances the perception of the currently sounding composition.
Color music: from the beginnings to the modern
The great Russian composer A. Scriabin became the progenitor of modern color music devices. For the “Poem of Fire” with his hands he created an apparatus with a keyboard that reproduces color effects. Christmas tree garland also has common roots with modern CMU. And in Soviet times, color music consoles for players became popular. Currently, the CMU has many forms – the consumer can choose the most suitable option for him.
Popular types of color music: selection rules
Before you buy color music, the first thing you need to decide for what purposes it will be used, for what area is designed:
For organizing home parties and discos (home installation).
For color accompaniment in small rooms: cafes, bars or home use (compact laser installation, LED projector, etc.).
For the organization of light performances at discotheques, in clubs (disco ball with the ability to connect several devices into one circuit, LED projector, animation projector, etc.).
The following selection criteria should be the functionality for reproducing color effects:
Availability from 1 to 7 colors.
Operating modes: in music, in cars, without musical accompaniment.
The ability to reproduce embedded drawings (texts, diagrams, holograms).
Ability to adjust the reproduction frequency of color rays.
Determine the location for the device, in accordance with this, choose according to the mounting device:
Tripod (handle) for outdoor installation.
Bracket for mounting to a wall, ceiling.
And perhaps the last main selection criterion will be the presence of internal memory (its size) and the programs loaded into it.
If you want to turn your home party into a real fiery show or own a small cafe where you need to organize light support for musical compositions, then a variety of color music models will make it easy to carry out any planned projects.
