"Refractions Volume I" is a symbiotic audio/visual project created by Jake Allen (music) and Jennifer Mann (paintings). The paintings and songs were created in response to each other. Some of these collaborative pieces started with a song from Jake which Jennifer would translate into a painting. Others started with a painting from Jennifer which Jake would translate into a song.

The starting inspirational foundations for each of these ten collaborations were chosen gemstones i.e. diamond, amethyst etc. which would inspire the starting artist's initial direction. The result is a trifecta of stone, song, and painting each informing each other.

This project is an exploration into synesthesia, a perceptual phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway.
