I must admit that I had not read your text wholly: but my question is still the same and in fact I would love to know if you are aware of the material I have sent to you?

Various composers and painters in the early 20th Century were looking at Synaesthesia including Kandinsky (Colour and Sound in his essay Klänge and also in his essay or rather book On the Spiritual in Art). Alexander Scriabin with his colour organ (so-called) for his Prometheus: the Poem of Fire was also excited about synaesthesia and so too for Wagner and various poets too. My question belongs to the kind - "what does the computer add to the play of chance here"? Why "sculptures" or pictures as opposed to something else like a Frying Pan?
