Sonification experiments of a few beautiful images

from the Spun Spectra series by Nicolas Teichrob


In these preliminary examples I utilized a system based on a process of spectogram imaging that utilize the images of the complex light spectra of spider webs captured by Nicholas Teichrob, as sonograms. Using Max Msp Jitter, the images are scanned mapping the parameters of frequency and amplitude over variable time frames, revealing a similarly rich and complex web-like sonic architecture that allows for both an aesthetic and cognitive perception of the original observed phenomenon and its fascinating manifestations.

Thank you Nic for such wonderful photographs!
