dyson modes is a visual amplifier for music. Rather than map sound to amplitude or spectrum, dyson modes focuses on tonality, pitch, interval, and duration. These channels disturb and animate abstract structures that express the underlying music in challenging but accessible ways.
dyson modes is an amalgam of software, musical instrument, visual environment, and soundscape. A single voice drives an engine of sound, form, color, motion, and emotion.
