(The song that will play on our web app using the link ab0ve was chosen by us to show a good example of how our visualization works with the sound)
*Note: Some Soundcloud links will not play in our app due to copyright options set by the original uploaders, we could not find a way around this nor do we want to to avoid any legal repercussions.
Music is an interesting thing to play around with. You can perform so many functions with music and create conceptual art. The possibilities are endless in the music realm. So we decided to use music to its full potential, and give the viewer or user a full on music experience taking full measures of data and converting it into an interactive yet vibrant art piece. The main idea for our concept was to utilize the Soundcloud API so that users can grab music from their servers and display and play with and interesting and interactive graphics. By taking high and low frequencies of any soundcloud song and incorporating it into our api we were able to create a visually stunning piece of art. This is api also eliminates any boundaries for music. The art will react depending on the musical genre you decide to use. This is very user friendly and simply involves the user to only have to copy and paste a soundcloud url of their choice. Once that is done the play button needs to be pressed and the soundcloud api will do the rest. By taking live data from online music we were able to create an interesting web application that turns any kind of music into an interactive graphic. The possibilities are endless and music can be displayed in many shapes and sizes and this was our premise with the Soundcloud API.
