snd_xpriment is a series of experiments to generate sound from video.
Mapping values to others is the basis of the principle of analogy. Quantum theory proves that light is both a particle and a wave, depending on the observer position / choice. If light is a wave, then it can be trnasformed in sound… This series, that will help working on a future performance called Emergence, is aimed to find a light to sound mapping that can make sense with the environment.
_snd_xpriment #03 is based on the luminosity, while the video at the bottom of the page (_snd_xpriment #01) is based on the image histogram. Both are recorded live in Quartz Composer, with my OpenCV and AudioGraph plugins.
