Real-time Visualization Lighting Show


Hi,

I created this real-time music visualization software from scratch over the past few months and plan to use it in my upcoming live set shows in Southern California. It actually makes the animation as the music plays inside the DAW, so you can do all sorts of crazy live mix-up stuff in Ableton & FL Studio, etc., like, you can play stuff live on a MIDI controller and having it show up on the screen mixed in with the other graphics.

What you see is a bare-bones proof-of-concept demonstration that I threw together using all the basic shapes implemented so far.

I'm seriously stumped for inspiration and wondering if anyone has any interesting ideas how this could be integrated more-so with the audience's experience to make the show even more engaging and live-esque? I could theoretically make it interact with a Microsoft Kinect from an XBox360? Like a fake light sabre battle?

Or, the system could support people in the audience sending text messages to a predefined number, and somehow a few choice selected messages could get displayed on the screen. E.g. you could have the people in the crowd text their favorite sports team the the most texted team gets displayed? (that kinda sounds cheesy, though).

Cheers, -Arpeggio Junkie

That's awesome! I don't really have any ideas, but something to do with live video from a web cam or camera interfering with the stuff. I'd also love to add own textures and changing them on the fly or a long video playing as texture.

Also would be nice if it could pick audio signal from the mic input, I don't use DAW when I perform stuff live.

I did something similar for my final year college project but nothing as extensive as yours , using a kinect could be good for you or indeed a webcam , similar to how Aphex Twin does it live .

Er, is this really running in real-time? It looks like its pre-made for the video

:S

It is nice though!

Re: Music Visualization Software

How is this running in realtime? I am extremely interested to see how it was made as well.

Put something like this in VR and let people throw their own music in,

Re: Music Visualization Software

Yes, it's really running in real-time. MIDI events stimulate the graphical entities.

You can assign any instrument to any graphical entity.

I have even implemented a widget to display scales graphically.

MIDI notes are intercepted for each instrument and converted into packets by the computer running the DAW. The packets are then transmitted through a computer network. A second computer (not running a DAW) which is dedicated exclusively to processing graphics, receives the packets which are decoded and converted into graphical events. A projector displays the video output on a wall.

You can visualize an entire song showing every single instrument.
