Lemi E, Georgaki A, Whitney J. Reviewing the transformation of sound to image in new computer music software. In: Proceedings of the 4th Sound and Music Computing Conference. ; 2007.
Abstract:In the following essay we are going to analyse the
relationship between sound and image in computer
music. We will be examining sound visualisation
software, and its evolution over the thirty-five year
timespan in which it has existed. How we judge software,
is based on aesthetic criteria, the way they were handed
down to us from theories of abstract painting (20th
century avant-garde) , the theory of montage by Sergei
Eisenstein, of neurophysiology (synesthesia, muscular
images) and of the successful correspondence of the
two media (pixel and music) in the works and theory
of James Whitney.
