Audio Reactive Processing Sketch

Audio reactive animation using Processing’s minim library

This is one of my experiments using Processing’s minim library to analyze audio. The method employs a Fast Fourier Transform (FFT), allowing for real time visualization of frequency. In this sketch, I played around with frequency bins and intensity thresholds.

The song is “Aspectacle” by Can. I chose this song both because I like it (and could handle listening to it repeatedly) and upon first hearing it, I imaginedĀ a psychedelic audio reactive animation. I love doing work like this, as it hits all of the math, physics, music, and visual bells in my brain.
