DIY visuals controlled by DIY music tools

Most music visuals:

  • are fairly inefficient at reacting to music
  • can be sloppy in their reaction times and granularity of reaction
  • usually react to an analysis of the audio spectrum
  • however, can work with any piece of music or sound

Short Term Goals

  • create a system that creates music based on open source tools (pure data)
  • music system sends platform agnostic network messages to another machine (OSC, wireless networking when possible)
  • the other machine creates visual imagery based on logic designed to react with precision to network messages with open source programmatic graphics generator (Processing)

Longer Term Goals

  • Create a patch for Quartz Composer to accept OSC messages? That would be pretty bad ass.
  • Have one music source act as a ringmaster and control several graphics generators at once
