HARTFORD, Conn., June 13, 2017 — Oscilloscape, a pioneer in neuroscience of music technology, announced today the launch of a Kickstarter campaign (http://kck.st/2swLl5S) to fund its first consumer offering, the Synchrony™ LED Controller. The Intelligent LED Controller creates spectacular lighting effects for music enthusiasts.
Led by Dr. Edward Large, one of the world’s top authorities in music cognition and theoretical neuroscience, Oscilloscape engineers designed a powerful neural network that mimics the brain’s synchronization to musical rhythms. It listens to music and creates a synesthetic experience with LED lights. Based on 20 years of research in the neuroscience of music, Synchrony™ does not simply react to sound vibration, but actually hears rhythmic structures, mirroring what is happening inside your brain when you listen to music. As a result, it spontaneously creates head-bobbing, dance party-inducing visualizations.
“All of us at Oscilloscape are excited to bring a truly immersive music visualization experience to people who love music like we do,” said Dr. Edward Large, theoretical neuroscientist and professor. “Synchrony™ is simple to set up, fun to use, and works with any music.”
Synchrony™ can listen to any live or recorded music using its built-in microphone. Without any technical skill or training required, users simply turn it on and play their choice of music. In addition, users can control the color palette and pattern mode to customize their experience. Synchrony™ is perfect for dance parties, dorm rooms, Christmas trees, club scenes, and more.
Available now on Kickstarter, contributions more than $99 gives donors one Synchrony™ controller and a five-meter strip of LED lights. Backers may choose from a variety of support levels ranging from $10 to $999, with reward levels that offer enough controllers, lights and accessories to decorate any indoor or outdoor environment. Oscilloscape is aiming to raise $50,000 by July 13, 2017 and backers can expect the first controllers to ship in October 2017.
Oscilloscape develops technologies and software for analyzing audio and other time-based signals, including music and speech. Oscilloscape’s novel technology is based on research in auditory neuroscience, enabling signal processing, pattern analysis, and learning using neural networks that resonate to acoustic signals.
