Three Space v1.2

March 30, 2015


A live audiovisual performance linking the melody and sonic textures within a minimal techno track directly to abstract visualisations inspired by experimental animators John Whitney Sr. and Larry Cuba.

This is the latest documentation of a work that first featured as part of a performance at Seeing Sound 3, Bath Spa University, UK, 24th November 2013 as part of Lewis Sykes’ Practice as Research PhD and recent collaborative practice with Ben Lycett. Lycett & Sykes built a real-time, music visualisation system – integrating similar algorithms to those used by pioneering, computer-aided, experimental animators John Whitney Sr. and Larry Cuba – in openFrameworks, the open source C++ toolkit for creative coding. The visualisation was driven by MIDI data from the music produced by Sykes in Ableton Live.
