Toronto, ON –The Nanoleaf Rhythm is here to combine vision and sound into a fully immersive music experience. Launching this September, the Rhythm is an add-on module that transforms the Nanoleaf Light Panels into real-time music visualizations. For the first time ever, witness your favorite songs come to life as dancing symphonies of light.


Enchanting Interpretations of Music

The Rhythm makes it possible to see sound, visually remastering your music into animated displays of color and light. Released last year, the modular Nanoleaf Light Panels changed the way the world experiences light. Now, the Rhythm adds another dimension to the Nanoleaf journey: bringing your playlist to life before your eyes, delighting our senses and revolutionizing the way we perceive music. With gorgeous color displays created by your own soundtrack, the Rhythm takes you on a sensory adventure that’s personalized just for you.


Plug and Press Play

The Rhythm is a small sound module that plugs into any Light Panel. Its built-in audio sensor automatically picks up on beats, sounds, and melodies, translating the sounds into melodic light shows. Full customization of Rhythm Scenes (animations) can be done directly from the Nanoleaf App. As a bonus, you get to be a part of the online Nanoleaf community to share, download and vote for your favorite scenes right in the Discover section of the new App.

Each Rhythm Scene reacts to sound in a different way, and will work with varying genres of music from Pop to Classical and R&B to EDM.The Rhythm comes with eight preset Scenes, and can be personalized with your own color selection.

Control the Rhythm in three ways. Customize Rhythm scenes using the App, activate Scenes with your voice (Siri, Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant), or manually toggle through Scenes with the physical button on the Rhythm. For the more advanced users, IFTTT and an SDK are also available for even more customizations.

Fully Immersive Experience of Sound

“Adding the Rhythm music visualizer was the natural next step for Nanoleaf,“ states Gimmy Chu, CEO and Co-Founder of Nanoleaf. “We’ve received an overwhelming response from our customers to have a music visualizer for the Nanoleaf Light Panels. Visuals play an incredible part in how we experience everyday life, but our senses extend so much further than that. Sound, along with sight, is one of the most interactive senses we have. With the Rhythm, these two can now come together, creating a fully immersive experience sensory experience and pushing the limits of self-expression.”
