The shape of sound

This project shows a transition of images reacting by voices or other sound. I've been thinking a lot about how sound, an invisible element, can be converted into a visual element. As part of that, I created fun visuals and made them transform in fun ways when the user made any sound. I first tested it using Processing and then used the Web Audio API and canvas tag to make this interactive design usable on the website. When the user makes a sound through the microphone, the corresponding visual elements are transformed based on the sound information.

Let's try!

Use a microphone to experience audio transformation.

1. Select a shape type from the dropdown button

1. Make a sound. (your voice or other sounds)

2. Experience changes in visual elements
