Developer Ryan McGee has released a new sound design app for iOS, VOSIS, that synthesizes sound based on the greyscale image pixel data from photos or live video input.
OSIS is an interactive image sonification interface that creates complex wavetables by raster scanning greyscale image pixel data.
Using a multi-touch screen to play image regions of unique frequency content rather than a linear scale of frequencies, it becomes a unique performance tool for experimental and visual music. A number of image filters controlled by multi-touch gestures add variation to the sound palette. On a mobile device, parameters controlled by the accelerometer add another layer expressivity to the resulting audio-visual montages.
Here’s a demo of VOSIS in action: Continue reading
