Sketching with sound...

video

Even more baby steps towards visualizing audio...

Coded in Processing, this experiment responds to the amplitude of the audio track used.

The audio and visuals are synced and the video is generated at 10fps within the Processing application.

I used the Minim and Video libraries.

The audio track used is Sequent C' by Tangerine Dream, the delicate sounds produce beautiful and emotive visuals.

ps. Comments are welcome, I'm still a noob to Processing so all the feedback/tips I receive appreciated, cheers.

Audio Visual Sketch 01

video

Baby steps towards visualizing audio...


Coded in Processing, this merely responds to the amplitude of the audio track used.

Unfortunately I haven't managed to sync the audio/video data together yet (for export), so just the visuals will have to do for now.

I used the track Sequent C' by Tangerine Dream to produce this quick sketch. I was extremely surprised to see how much variation in visuals could be achieved by experimenting with musical genres.


I plan on capturing audio from "settings" and then feeding it through similar code to this to generate emotive visualizations.

Love n Hate (Sketch)

video

This is a small sketch, coded in Processing.

Here I am looking at two
emotions and their relationship with one another. It's interesting to observe how (supposedly opposite) emotions can be confused.
