This happy sound and music visualisation app converts sound frequencies into light/colour frequencies, in the most scientifically accurate visualisation process available on iOS. Will you find the aliens?
- Many geometries to explore the colour of your sounds
- Mood light mode for music-responsive ambient light projection
- Science page to learn more about our senses
- Secret modes to unlock
1: The visualisation will begin immediately. Speak to your device or play music. Select different geometries with 2 fingers.
2: Instructions are included in the app, you can access them any time with two fingers.
The art of synesthesia:
As trippy psychedelic synesthesia art, this app is an exploration of the relationship between our audio and visual senses, and the nature of our consciousness.
The science of the senses:
Your eyes contain 3 colour receptive cells, each having different sensitivities within the perceptible light spectrum. At the same time, your ears have different sensitivities over the audible spectrum. In addition, our eyes and ears re-adjust depending on the intensity of light and sound. Using real data on the nature of our sensory organs, the ambient sound spectrum picked up by your device's microphone is converted into light in real-time, so you can for the first time see the colour of your voice, music, nature and environment.
This app forms part of a larger project of synesthesia and sound visualisation. For more information, apps and more details about the science involved, please visit the blog site:
If you would like to contribute music for a future release, or use this process in your own projects, live performances, VJ sets, or other, please send me an email.
This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.
Ratings and Reviews
I got this thinking I could visualize my music, which technically I can, but only if I play it through the iPhone speaker so that the iPhone mic picks it up. Please add an option to react to the iPhone audio directly so not only can I use it with headphones, but so it receives a high quality, accurate representation of the music.
WhAt?! This turns OFF your internet radio! Don't bother!
So let me get this straight: this is a visualizer for my music, but if I want to listen to the DiFm that I am a paid subscriber to, the visualizer goes out of its way to shut OFF my internet music stream? Why? What possible purpose would this action logically serve?
But, you want to turn ON my microphone which is directed where there ISN'T music?
(Umm..wearing earbuds like everyone else on the planet...)
I can tell you've made a great visualizer here, you just need to add some options to accommodate different listener's varying methods of listening to their tunes. Especially the most common ones! Not a whole lot of people play music loudly from their iPhone speaker while it sits on a table. If ANYbody... And the mandatory blocking of Internet radio is beyond ridiculous.
One of my favorites it comes to pure aesthetics
The subject says it all really, I'm a big fan of this app. Any app that takes sound/music and turns it into a visual representation in realtime is very entertaining and really does something for me... Too wet, I've been using this one for years and it's one that I constantly come back to. Especially after unlocking the additional features by way of "finding the aliens" lol thanks for a job very well done, dev!
