Aral Balkan is an experience designer working to change the world through better design. Aral would go so far as to say that he wants to create and experience designs that make us feel like superheroes when we interact with them! He is a hugely popular speaker and recently won Microsoft Ubelly’s Voice of the Year as well as recognition from .Net Magazine for giving one of the top talks of 2012.

This is just a test of an Audio Visualization Framework library I am writing for Processing [http://processing.org]. It basically just abstracts a lot of the work of syncing audio (live, generative, or recorded) and generative video.
The music is The Album Leaf's "Twenty Two Fourteen". They seem to be a convention in this type of work. Sorry for the horrible encoding quality.
** A little bit of credit to Ira Greenberg on this one, if you can catch that reference you are a true Processing nerd **
