Every now and then you see some particullary beautiful eyes … some of them inspired me to use images of eyes to create musical material. I wrote a little framework/application in Processing to help me analyse the image. “Scanners” circulate in the eye and analyse RGB and brightness values. These values are used to create OSC Messages, which then are send to SuperCollider. SuperCollider would be a great way to produce the sound, but for this example i decided to use SC3 to send MIDI events to Ableton Live, to two instances of the Alphakanal Automat Synthesizer. Look/hear for yourself:
Little reminder. This is a work in progress and I see much room for improvements. I only spend about one hour for the SuperCollider/Ableton Live part, so this could sound a lot nicer ;-)
Stay tuned for more!
