Sylvia Lin – Sound Controlled Animation

My initial idea was to do something with animator Matthieu Braccini’s work but I realized most of his GIFs are relatively long and might seem very disjointed if I were to control it with audio input.

Therefore, I looked for something that was more consistent overall and had only subtle difference in between each frame. I took the GIF file from the famous video Coincidance and converted it into JPG files in order to render the animation. Using amplitude instead of pitch as the metric is more suitable for this background music, which is Tunak Tunak Tun by Daler Mehndi.

  1. Nice animated visualizer! I like your choice of source material. It would be interesting to see how it works with music that is less rhythmically consistent.

    Cool, clever, funny, and well executed!

    This one is really fun and intuitive when it’s in action. One idea to make this more dynamic could be to split the images into three panels, allowing to control each dancer individually.
