Animation, Sonification, and Fluid-Time: A Visual-Audioizer Prototype

Olsen, Taylor J

Editor(s)
Michon, Romain; Schroeder, Franziska

The visual-audioizer is a patch created in Max in which the concept of fluid-time animation techniques, in tandem with basic computer vision tracking methods, can be used as a tool to allow the visual time-based media artist to create music. Visual aspects relating to the animator's knowledge of motion, animated loops, and auditory synchronization derived from computer vision tracking methods, allow an immediate connection between the generated audio derived from visuals—becoming a new way to experience and create audio-visual media. A conceptual overview, comparisons of past/current audio-visual contributors, and a summary of the Max patch will be discussed. The novelty of practice-based animation methods in the field of musical expression, considerations of utilizing the visual-audioizer, and the future of fluid-time animation techniques as a tool of musical creativity will also be addressed.
