Arjun Gupta, a master student in Digital Media from Drexel University, Philadelphia PA sent a mail to Prof. Ravi Mokashi, which was later on forwarded to me to get some feedback on his thesis project called “music in images”, where algorithmic music composition is created from digital images. While going through the website, and uploading an actual image, it is really pleasant and worth using it. Arjun mentions
“It presents an approach where visual art (or visual data) is transformed into music art (or sound data) through the application of an algorithmic filter.
This project presents a new approach towards algorithmic music composition where the music is composed using the pixel values of digital images. The application makes use of image data, such as: pixel Color, Saturation, Brightness, and qualities like: Overall Image Brightness, Color Variation and Prominent Colors. The song attributes controlled by them include: Melody generation, Durations, Cord Generation, Chord Progression, Tempo,Scale and Transposition.”
Great going Arjun
