This book is an interesting read as it is a written account of Goethe's observations and experiments. You'll take away more than just information regarding colour theory, but will be left pondering many aspects of the human mind. Whether you agree with his findings or thoughts in part or full, much of what he observed is still relevant.

Format: Paperback
Wonderful book that delves into the relationship between colours, and correlation to sound and shape. This provides a foundation for multimedia experiments that became popular in the late 19th century. These have led to the light shows that have been used in music to enhance the musical experience (60' psychadelia, Jean Michel Jarre and visualisations available in media players). Goethe was truly a visionary and his ideas are still relevant today and are a great starting point for audio-visual experimentation.
