I’d like to explain a concept im taking through to proof of concept for my uni degree (interactive design)
Ive been struck that visualisations on stage for bands etc tend to be driven by fft data and beat detection. Whilst i enjoy these visualisatins I dont feel they reflect the actual intracacies of the musicians interaction with his instrument.
Using midi id like to create a visualisation for each of the bands instrument.
Imagine that as a guitarist plucks at his strings each note and and its attack etc is individually represented on screen. I envision streak of light shooting up and decaying away as the musician plays.
I hope that will add a true sense visual feedback to the musicians musical input.
Id be grateful for any feedback, have you seen anything like this before? do you think the concept will work?
