Realitat - Microsonic Landscapes- 08.21.12

microsonic0.jpg Realitat’s Microsonic Landscapes are “an algorithmic exploration of the music we love. Each album’s soundwave proposes a new spatial and unique journey by transforming sound into matter/space: the hidden into something visible.” According to Creative Applications it is created with Processing and printed with Makerbot. Each object represents an album, but it’s unclear to me how tracks are represented… perhaps each ring? or does it all just spiral flow together to the center? or outwards? Also curious, what are the axes representing? Anyhow, it’s a pretty visualization of the albums, somehow… take a peek at more details on the next page.

This is lovely. Who knows if future archaeologists will uncover these models and create a device to playback these ‘recordings’. I wonder if there are any copyright implications!?!

Make one for Miles’ “Kind of Blue” and I will throw money at you so fast it will break my computer screen

Hey thanks for the feedback!

Yes indeed, the tracks are displayed as “rings”. Usually the first track in the album is the outer one (with the exception of Nick Drake’s Pink Moon, that features many tracks in the same ring).

It is not a ‘literal’ representation of the soundwave of course, but if you’ve heard the album alot you could recognize some special moments. For example, the great track “Another World” from Antony Hegarty is indeed more “flat” with less abrupt changes in contrast to other tracks from the same album.

Cheers!

All of that lovely work somewhat undermined by a typo. Portishead. It’s Portishead.
