Musical Flocks is a project in the field of music visualization. It produces animations by simulating the behavior of agents that react to the sound of music. Additionally, swarm-like behavior is attained by following the rules of separation, alignment and cohesion. This process produces reactive animations and static artifacts that constitute representations of the pieces, with different genres resulting in artifacts with distinct visual properties.
Made with Processing and beads.
Concept, design and implementation: Ruslan Kamolov
Supervisors: Penousal Machado and Pedro Miguel Cruz
Music: "Five Armies" and "Jackhammer" by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)
