Exploring the Music of Bach with Engaging and Interactive Visuals

An animated app for musical play.

We've created an iPad app that is part of a larger media project which explores contemporary influences of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Interactive and engaging, the app encourages users to play with music in a new way by analyzing the frequencies of 16 different music tracks. Based on those analytics, the app displays animations and painterly images that interact with the sound. From there, the user can interact further, changing the visuals by creating their own abstract designs in tune with the music using a control panel with customized brushes and colors.
