Typhoon Light Balls and Forest of Resonating Life - 9 Blurred Colors and 3 Flattening Colors

Typhoon Light Balls are a group of giant balls that float, sink, and continuously turn. When they are struck by a person or recieve an impact, they change color and produce a unique sound tone.

The ovoids in the vicinity are autonomous and self-righting. When an ovoid is pushed down, it changes its light color and emits a sound tone unique to the color as it rights itself. The surrounding ovoids and Typhoon Light Balls resonate one after another, shining the same color of light and emitting a tone in succession.

Because the Typhoon Light Ball and ovoid colors are produced by light, it is possible to create nine blurred colors (light in water, sunlight on water plants, morning glow, morning sky, sky at twilight, peach, plum, iris, and spring maple), and three flattening colors (red, green, and blue), producing a total of twelve colors.
