Asvajit Boyle lives and works in Colombo, Sri Lanka. He is an audio/visual artist and designer with a special interest in long-form design.
Visualizing Sound is a synesthetic transposition from sound to visual effects and from visual reception to an auditory experience. Boyle uses digital technology to ‘hear’ an image and ‘see’ sounds, to simulate synesthetic sensations. Using an image-based sound editor, synthesizer and processor in conjunction with Deep Dream, (an experimental computer vision program created by Google) to generate images of sounds that lie outside of human audible range and create soundscapes of images that are not possible to view through the naked eye.  The finalized image and sound installation create an immersive audio-visual experience for the viewer, allowing the viewer to feel sensation that would not be otherwise possible.
Boyle’s most recent exhibitions are Imago Mundi: Re-Imagining Ceylon (2017), Colombo Art Biennale (2016) and Colombo Scope (2015).  He is the founder of Jambutek Recordings, an independent music imprint and artist collective based in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
