People have been trying to create art out of music for years, but with the development of VR (virtual reality) devices, the progression of music visualization was pushed further. The combination of music and art is truly a synergistic combination of our visual and auditory senses, maximizing the viewing experience for those who enjoy art, music, or both. It is interesting to see how people interpret different music and portray it with distinct visual forms, and how some literally use the sound properties of the music to guide them and others become very abstract.
Since our first project (1.1) on visualization of a soundscape, I’ve been rather interested in learning how other people would interpret various sounds. Such is why this phenomenon was especially fascinating as music can also be enhanced with the introduction of a visual aspect.
