Look at that carpet!! This is a photo of the basement in the Alden B. Dow Home and Studio. The basement was a place for fun and entertainment. Mr. Dow enjoyed partaking in plays, making movies, playing with toys, and even came up with his idea of somnophonics. Somnophonics is a mixture of light, music, and photos. To Alden B. Dow, somnophonics is where “music becomes a picture painted in sounds, a picture becomes music played in color.” Also seen in this photo is part of a couch that Mr. Dow designed himself.
