Patatap invites creators of all ages to engage the mind and senses in a different type of creation process.The idea behind Patatap was to introduce Visual Music to a broad audience. Artists working in this field are different, but many are exploring a condition called Synesthesia, which one sense (for example, hearing) is simultaneously perceived as if by one or more additional senses such as sight. Hearing smells or seeing sounds are examples.  In Patatap, sounds trigger colorful visual animations.

Lullatone is a Japanese musical duo based in Nagoya, whose music is characterized by an innocent, childlike quality and spare, lo-fi sounds.
