In Rainbow Room, a feast for senses true,
Colors of light spectrum in their hue,
Through meditative surround sound and projection,
Visitors experience a wondrous reflection.

Each stage a dedication to a chakra's power,
Color and sound combined in a musical shower,
Crown to root, B to C, a journey through the spine,
Grounding energy downward to connect and align.

Dinshah P. Ghadiali's chromotherapy research plays a part,
With crystal singing bowls and tubular bells in the heart,
And the artist's own sound-to-color translation,
A symphony of resonance and transformation.

Projected vividly, colors dance with sound,
Acoustic instrumentation melds and abounds,
Creating a third thing, a human body's vibration,
A humble experiment, with a listener's intention.
