An experiment with generative sound that is based on visual material.

I used material from the Kallio Archive. Footage by Emmi Vainio (7 videos clips), Cvijeta Miljak (2 video clips), Kalle Kuisma (1 video clip), Minna Tarkka (3 video clip). All used video material (CC BY).

Steps & tips

I selected clips from the Kallio archive and connected them to one large file within a video editing software. Then I loaded the video on Processing and extracted the average color of 25 columns. These were sent to SuperCollider in OSC messages where the sound rendering took place. The accompanying code part can be found here.

And here is a video showing the project:
