Partitura Generative Visualization Tool This video is a realtime sound visualisation, made with the custom software Partitura. Sound by Telefon Tel Aviv Partitura is designed to generate realtime graphics aimed at visualising sound: The term “Partitura” (score) implies a connection with music, and this metaphor is the main focus of the project. Partitura aims to create a new system for translating sound into visual forms. Inspired by the studies of artists such as Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Oscar Fischinger and Norman McLaren, the images generated by Partitura are based on a precise and coherent system of relationships between various types of geometries. The main characteristic of this system is its horizontal linear structure, like that of a musical score. Partitura creates endless evolving abstract landscapes that can respond to musical structures, audio analysis and manual gestural inputs. Related links:
Note pattern | The Shape of Music | Opal MIDI keyboards The Opal is an example of a sonome, a new musical instrument with its notes arranged in a unique way that has interesting and revealing characteristics with many advantages for the user. (fig.1) Fig 1 Sonomes are available in the form of the limited edition Opal range of MIDI Controllers. Conventional piano keyboards feature a note arrangement that has been with us since the 16th century and is still the basis of nearly all acoustic and electronic pianos, organs, synths and MIDI controllers. In order to make a true comparison with a sonome keyboard, it is worth re-examining what a conventional keyboard really comprises: the notes are arranged in the pattern of the diatonic scale in the key of C, in a single line ascending from left to right with the 'enharmonics' (sharps and flats – black keys) in a second row off-set between the 'naturals' (white keys). The resulting familiar note-pattern makes is easy to play in the keys of C major or A minor, using only the naturals. Fig 2 Fig 3 Fig 4 Fig 5
