    Part of a series of explorations based on audio and geometry. In Houdini the audio is generated from 3D geometry. As the particles collide they create an audio pulse based on their height. The is…

      I used a MIDI file to create the geometry in Houdini. I then moved the geometry into Cinema 4D to make it more interesting and render it. More: http://simonfarussell.com/Audio-Geometry-Exploration

          I used a MIDI file I found online of Philip Glass' Mad Rush to trigger particles which emit from the centre of the screen outwards. A fairly simple setup but interesting to see the geometry in…

              from Simon F A Russell Added 599 20 0

              In Houdini these flocking particles oscillate in size, as they pass a certain threshold they create a small audio blip. These combine to create the effect shown here. Notice too as the particles move…

                  ----------LISTEN IN STEREO---------- The idea here was to mimic how fireflies can sychronise their pulses. It begins chaotically and then they begin to sychronise. The pitch of each 'firefly'…

                      2D primitives trigger audio. The audio pitch is based on the length of the side.
