I’m genuinely awestruck now, thanks to the Grinding guys, again! Eyesequencer is a project that basically transforms a hi-rez iris image into ambient (the sound is pumped out by Ableton, in the video example that’s ambient but imagine how your pupils could retch some evil tekstep onto this world). According to the project description on makezine,
Every now and then you see some particularly beautiful eyes … some of them inspired me to use images of eyes to create musical material. I wrote a little framework/application in Processing to help me analyse the image. “Scanners” circulate in the eye and analyse RGB and brightness values. These values are used to create OSC Messages, which then are send to SuperCollider. SuperCollider would be a great way to produce the sound, but for this example i decided to use SC3 to send MIDI events to Ableton Live, to two instances of the Alphakanal Automat Synthesizer.
