Created in response to Sarah Tappenden's Waves piece.
I separated the blue and red portions of the original image, and put them both through sonification software.
One long piece of audio was made from the red waves, which is heard through the entirety of my piece. I applied a tremolo to this effect to add a rhythmic element. This was then visualised as the pale pink audio frequency meter in the middle of the video.
A copy of this audio was put into Steinberg's Padshop Pro, (granular synthesis instrument), which performed the samples as chords, through an arpeggiator. In the video, this is the blue waveform which appears at the very top.
Another copy of this was put through Padshop, but then treated as a bass instrument in terms of EQ and dynamics. This is the pink waveform which appears at the very bottom.
Various shorter audio samples were made from the blue background. These were put into Native Instrument's Battery to be re-pitched and treated as percussive samples. These were triggered rhythmically, and can be seen as the blue-purple waveform just below the middle.
Final visual touches included layering several semi-transparent parts of the blue background together and moving them at varying speeds, along with blur and displacement effects to create a (somewhat nauseating) sense of movement.
This was a fun piece to make, I'm gradually getting closer to my goal of creating enjoyable audio out of data and art sonification.
