The clavier a lumieres was a musical instrument invented by Scriabin for use in his work Prometheus: Poem of Fire. However, it was never built in his lifetime. The instrument was supposed to be a keyboard, with notes corresponding to colors as given by Scriabin's synesthetic system. Scriabin assigned the following colors to the following notes:

Note Color
C red
C# violet or purple
D yellow
D# gray
E sky blue
F deep red
F# bright blue
G orange
G# lilac
A green
A# gray
B light blue

However, when the notes are ordered by the circle of fifths, the colors are in order of a spectrum, indicating that he did not experience the physiological condition of synaesthesia, and that it was a thought out system that was influenced by his theosophic readings and based on Sir Isaac Newton's Optics:

Color Note
red C
orange G
yellow D
green A
sky blue E
light blue B
bright blue F#
violet or purple C#
lilac G#
gray D#
gray A#
deep red F

These multi- channel light organs are veritable audio spectrum analysers, whereby the spectral composition is shown not on oscilloscopes or printed charts, but on displays of multiple lights.
Lights from pairs of adjacent channels are thus interlaced all through-out the display, obtaining rotational motions, and this in addition to the large display-sweeping motions resulting from deep frequency shifts.
And all of these are super-imposed on the basic light intensity modulation occuring on each channel in response to the power of the particular frequency components.
