Fullday Workshop: Getting started with Music Visualization
This workshop is for artists, musicians, creative coders, professionals, students, designers, who want to get into music visualization by generating and interacting with realtime 2d graphics in vvvv.
Together with sound and visual artist Natan Sinigaglia you will be exploring the infinite possibilities of giving shape to sound is a life journey. Thanks to the visual programming language vvvv this exploration can be immediately smooth and playful, allowing you to follow the ephemeral moment of intuition arising from music and taking a creative path through generative real-time graphics.
What the vvvv?
vvvv is a visual programming environment that allows you to realize ideas quickly without the need to write any code. But if you want, you can also write C# code for it and use any .NET library with it! To give you an idea of the areas vvvv can be helpful in, here is a list of buzz words vvvv is often associated with:
- Generative Design
- Interaction Design
- Data Visualization
- Computer Vision
- Rapid Prototyping
- Physical Computing
- Projection Mapping
- Show Control
You will learn how to:
- Work with the visual programming environment vvvv (gamma)
- Get Audio signals in vvvv
- Process live audio inputs, extracting meaningful data from it
- Visualize MIDI files and live MIDI events
- Create procedural graphic elements and connect them to the music
- Use the VL.Animation.Particles library to explore visually some aspects of the sound
- Use the Elementa UI library to build a simple user interfaces to manage some aspects of the visuals in a performance enviroment
- Bring a Windows laptop
- Bring a 3 button mouse
- No prior knowledge of vvvv needed
