Presentation: Eyes Can Hear 5 Ways
Presenter: Jared Ficklin
This session looks at Sound Visualization in Flash from 5 perspectives. In Real Time, Without Time, Rendered, in Society and in Nature. There will be many new examples to drive inspiration and learning. The time will be spent building on the basics of Sound Visualization taking compute spectrum, finding new ways to use the data, finding new places to get data and ultimately pushing the experience past the four corners of the screen.
My goal is to help flatten the learning curve and take an energetic trip through a topic with lots of lateral thought. There will be plenty of influence and discussion of creative arts and the laws of physics.
There may or may not be smoke, fire, lasers & non-newtonian fluids. There will be lots of examples of many types of Sound Visualization. There will be some code samples. There will not be any code walk through, unless by popular uprising.
