Bizarre App Turns Pictures Of Your Eye Into Electronic Music

Do beautiful eyes make beautiful music?

That’s what Patrick of cappel-nord.de set to find out when he created eyeSequencer

He explains how this works:

I wrote a little framework/application in Processing to help me analyse the image. “Scanners”? circulate in the eye and analyse RGB and brightness values. These values are used to create OSC Messages, which then are send to SuperCollider. There I could generate sound, but for this example i decided to send MIDI control messages and notes to Ableton Live.

This is a work in progress and I see much room for improvements. I only spend about one hour for the SuperCollider/Ableton Live part, so this could sound a lot nicer 😉
