Colors

Colors connects the performer on stage and audience member in the crowd using augmented reality to generate a spatial music and visualization experience. Each audience member is provided a unique image target that triggers an individualized audio layer and motion graphic. The larger the crowd the louder the song and brighter the stage graphics.
