Sonification and drawings

Facilitating meaningful interaction in two inherently creative fields simultaneously is bound to get everyone’s creative juices flowing. In our term-project, we are looking at ways of generating online auditory interpretations of drawings. This will allow interactions where the painting drives the music that is being played, which will in-turn <hopefully> influence some characteristics of the resulting artwork.

Some really “cool” prior work that has been done in this field, includes:

http://www.earslap.com/projectslab/otomata : An innovative approach to music generation using cellular-automata.
