On the night of the performance, Harbisson set up shop as conductor. Instead of holding a stick, he wielded an iPad that allowed him to control the lights.
Calhoun Fifis's insight:

This article/video is a complete redefinition on how we could help students with difficulties learning music theory by linking notation to shades and color. 

 

How best do you learn musical theory? i.e Visual, Verbal or a kinesthetic hands on approach. Explain to me in no more than 100 words your ideal learning environment!
