Sound Art

Image

Do you want to talk with dolphins, trees, stones, or even representatives of extraterrestrial civilizations? With those who do not understand the human language. But we can not tell about ourselves in words. And waves, vibrations, sound. With the help of Sound Art, you can convert almost any image into a sound portrait. Including your own. And these sounds will tell more about us than any words.

Sound Art — a free program for visualizing sound and sound images. It is designed to convert images into sound and vice versa. Interpretations occur in accordance with the formulas of Fourier transforms and have mathematical precision! With the help of the program you can get very unusual sound textures, trying to convert various types of images, and making inverse transformations. It is very easy to work with the program, using simple actions from the sound you get a kind of picture, a sonogram. You can do anything with sonograms. For example, print and frame the wall. Or, after processing the image in any image editor, convert it back into sound and enjoy the new sound of the original material. Sound Art is designed for computer musicians, sound designers, specialists in the field of visual creativity. And all those who are interested in musical experiments.

System requirements:
  • Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7/8/10
  • 1024x768 display
  • DirectX
Complete set:
  • Program and its components.
  • Various examples for testing of the program in the different modes.

Very interesting indeed. Definitely giving this a spin later.

Is there sound generated from the video or the other way around? Either way, that's really cool.

This sound is derived from pictures. There was an idea to make sound from animated GIF images. I hope that this will be implemented in future versions of Sound Art program.

Sound Art Update Up to Version 1.1 Released :tu:
There are no significant changes, but the engine has been upgraded, as a result of which the system resources consumed by the program have decreased. This is true on unproductive computers as well as on outdated operating systems like Windows 2000/XP.

Really cool little program. I'm surprised that it still supports Windows 2000 and XP, these OS rarely get new software made for them anymore. I can imagine very cool sound designs being made with it and Paulstretch.

Just made compatibility with old versions of windows. Those functions that are not supported by the old operating systems (progress on the taskbar buttons, dialog boxes of the new generation ets) are simply ignored or replaced with self-made counterparts.

Man, you are a genius. This is absolutely incredible.

Not only is it cool for its own sake, but it really helps me understand synths like Iris and frequency more too.

Seeing harmonics displayed like in the organ sample just made it super clear for me.
