Visualized Piano

Tuesday, August 7th, 2018 | Blog, Downloads

I bought a piano off craigslist for $800 that has MIDI out. I’ve been doing semi-regular experiments to see what I can make with such things. The first thing I had to do was dust the cobwebs off my playing ability. I’m still very rusty but improving bit by bit.

I’ve experimented with audio analysis and MIDI control of ISF (shader code) with VDMX.

I’ve also had a friend bring over a Lightform and we mapped the piano and controlled the graphics via OSC protocol.

I’ve tried lots of experiments as far as capture and output is concerned. Here I’m live keying red rubber gloves with chroma key and using the image to drive feedback.

I’m just beginning to explore the possibilities, but one of the demos I have built into a training series for vidvox. As always, the source files can be download here or via the vidvox site. I’d like to experiment with more sounds & images, inputs & outputs.
