Painting by Music

Hand-painted by Camilla Lee to your own personal song choice.

By relating sound to colours, known as chromesthesia, Camilla builds a colour palette from acrylic lacquer and watercolour.

Whilst the commissioned song is playing, colours are picked out from the music. With the brushstrokes being directed by the rhythm and accents in the music.

Each painting is entirely unique, with the name and artist of the song handwritten at the edge of the painting. Other details can be added around the painted circle such as a date or name.

Please add your song choice and any further personalisation requests in the comments box at checkout.

Chromesthesia is a type of synesthesia where colours are seen when sounds are heard. Camilla wanted to find a way to visualise her chromesthesia for others to see and so has created the paintings to reflect this.

Furniture, Lighting and Sound Designer

I am a London based designer/maker working in the field of furniture, lighting and sound.

Whilst studying 3D Design & Craft at Brighton University, I developed a broad range of skills working with various materials. In particular favouring the aesthetics and organic sound qualities of wood and ceramic.

Application of sound and pattern has become a recurrent thread within my work, linking themes of sound therapy, interaction and lines. Fusing functionality with unique aesthetic forms.

I now work at Cockpit Arts in Holborn, London and have created the Resound collection.

The Resound collection started from extensive research into music therapy and the way in which natural materials can enhance sound quality.

From making xylophones from different timbers and materials, I investigated the natural sound tones. From this, I decided to use walnut as the main wood and parian ceramic.

From playing with these materials I aim to enhance the electronic sound and visual aesthetic of the iPhone. To accompany the iPhone amplifiers I developed a way to visualise my synesthesia through artwork. By seeing colours when I hear sound, I develop a colour palette from a selected song and use the brushstrokes to represent accents in the music and the rhythm.
