Audio Visual Piece for MAT 200B : Music and Technology (Winter 2010)

This composition was an exploration in mapping of one digital domain into another. The basic process involved creating visuals in Flash, importing them in MatLab and then converting each frame into a corresponding Sound based on its frequency constituents. The conversion was done using Fast Fourier Transform. It involved a lot of experimentation, some expected results and some unexpected. The final result is an audio-visual whole that is inherently in sync with both components. Initial idea for this project stemmed from experiments with inverse conversion of Sound sonograms.

Showcased at the MAT EoYS Concert- May, 2010.
