DRAWING WITH SOUND

Web / Interactive / Illustration

REAL TIME SOUND VISUALIZATION

I wanted to create a process that visualized the playing an instrument in real time. “Drawing with Sound” reads the frequency and amplitude of notes being played and turns them into an organic visual that changes based on the musician’s playing. I used Processing, specifically the Minim library, to create the interactive experience.

My inspiration for this project came from trying to blend my passions of design and music, so I could draw with my guitar when I played. I really love the idea of creating an experience that blends audio and visual elements together, it’s makes for a very unique interaction for users and spectators.
