I've been studying the work of Neil Harbisson for awhile and I'm
looking to try and replicate in part the functionality of his eyeborg
using Pure Data. I have already built a simple patch to convert pixels
to sound but now I want to expand on it. Here's my initial research:

Colours don't directly relate to sound and so Harbisson and others
must use a scale to assign colours to sounds. Some initial research
brought these up:


Can anyone think of a way to translate this into pd? In the end I
would like to be able to display a block of colour on screen and have
that generate a specific note.

Any help is appreciated.
