Rayne is an ongoing project by Leigh Davies which began in June of 2010. The purpose of the project was to invent a device that could create oil-on-water artwork using music as the paintbrush. Rayne was built to understand the melody from a musical performance and uses the information to dispense different coloured oil droplets depending on which notes are being played. As the melodies grow and evolve so do the paintings, with the oils ebbing and shifting across the surface of the water allowing for the creation of a beautiful visual representation of the very sounds that brought it to life.
