Blue-Yellow-Red is a responsive audiovisual installation and performance piece where an individual interacts with beams of light to create their own trans-media experience. There are three distinct movements to the project: Blue, Yellow & Red. Each has its own visual composition, distinct interactive framework and musical score. Abstract video and generative animations were combined with original music, composed and performed by Hunsinger on English Horns, Vietnamese oboe, Soprano saxophones, Irish whistles, found percussion and upright bass.

This project was inspired by Kandinsky's writings on synesthesia and coincide with a major retrospective of his work at the Frist Center, Fall 2014.

Many thanks to Keri Jhaveri and Megan Robertson at the Frist Center of Visual Art and to Cathie Berbena Lloyd at 4Wall Entertainment Lighting.

Thanks also to Tanya Neales, Kim Carter and Miller Rich for their help in the studio, Steve Ghertner and Wes O'Heron for being great sounding boards, Brian York, Mark Mitchell & Seamus Frawley for their expert documentation and creation of the profile piece, Kelly Landry for her lighting design guidance, Hall Hunsinger for encouragement and Kelly Kessler for all manner of support and insight along the way.
