My bachelor’s program had stressed the importance of developing an intuitive understanding of repetitive structures, interference patterns, and organizational schemes as aesthetic tools. Explorations of these principles took place with a focus not only on form but also color.
As these explorations had taken place exclusively in static media, I came away wanting to explore their potential in a dynamically evolving context.
To that end, I developed a music visualization that uses simple geometric shapes in conjunction with color and transparency effects. Combined with geometric translations, these create compelling structural arrangements and interference patterns. By mapping audio frequencies to coordinates on the screen, these interferences dynamically react to the progression of music. I built the project using Java and the open-source Processing visual library.
