KAMLOOPS - About 1 in every 3,000 people have a kind of synesthesia (or combination of senses) called chromesthesia, allowing them to see colour when they hear music. Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky is said to have used chromesthesia to create his paintings.

On select Fridays, the KAG joins Barnacle Records to offer a night of hands-on art and music making.

KAG art instructors will bring P.A.T., our Portable Art Trailer, and Barnacle Records will provide turntables and mixers for amateur and pro DJs to experiment.

Meld your senses and try your hand at DJing, printmaking and drawing. No experience is necessary; all materials are provided. DJs, please bring your own music.

No registration is required.

Chromesthesia / Melophoria
Friday, August 12, 26, September 9, 30, October 14, December 2
Barnacle Records, 290 3rd Avenue
6:00 to 9:00 pm
All ages, FREE
