about

The RGB color model is an additive model in which red, green and blue light are combined to produce a broader spectrum of color. White light is created when all colors of the spectrum converge in full intensity.

"White Noise" assigns an auditory waveform to each color to create sounds for Red, Green and Blue. Combined they form White. The intention of the assignment was not to create pure values for red, green and blue, but to mimic every day variance within each "hue". White, therefore, is founded on 15% grey.

Variance in all colors can be heard and phasing occurs as the colors converge to occupy the same auditory space on the threshold between each color.
