The Chromawheel Is An Instrument That Helps Visualize Music Theory
The Chromawheel Music Compass is a mechanical instrument that is designed to help users learn music theory by helping visualize musical scales and chords. Wooden pieces are placed as desired to create a particular scale or chord, and the rotary wheel then transposes these notes up or down the chromatic scale.
Learning music can be overwhelming — that’s why we developed the Chromawheel Music Compass to help you navigate music using your eyes & ears.
The creators of Chromawheel Music Compass, Brendan Finucane and Farsheed Hamidi-Toosi, have built a browser app recreation of the Chromawheel, and you can go here to play it, as well as learn more insights into the creation of this very useful tool.
