While browsing for articles I came upon this and thought it was pretty cool. It's a color organ that was developed in the 17-1800's. It reminded me of that application that kind of dances on your screen as you're listening to music and uses the rhythm and melody of the song to determine it's path. Only the color organ is a lot older and less technical. It's interesting that the idea of combining sound and image has been around for so long. The article basically explains the development of the color organ. Different notes presented different colors of light on a ground glass "screen".
