One minute soundsculpture

Published October 19, 2009 by Molly

If you ever wondered what it’s like to be a synaesthete, this video might provide a vicarious experience. Daniel Franke’s “One Minute Soundsculpture” is exactly that (actually, a minute and six seconds): a video scored by Ryoji Ikeda and filled with visual shenanigans that correspond to the soundtrack. We don’t know how he did it, but it’s mesmerizing.

Daniel Franke is a Berlin-based artist, designer and filmmaker who participates in We Are Chopchop, a community of media artists making mischief in the form of video, generative animated shorts and kinetic sculpture. Explore the work here, and watch Franke’s sound sculpture above.

    this is the closest depiction i’ve seen so far… it gets that the colors part is actually secondary to seeing the motion in the music.
