Isho Audiovisual Experience

How can we turn an otherwise ephemeral auditory experience into one that leaves a lasting impression? This audiovisual environment was designed with the goal to give music the power to create enduring physical impressions.

Using p5.js (Javascript), we imagined the canvas as a series of horizontal lines, symbolic of string instruments or staves (musical notation). We created particle attractors with amplitude, beat, peak, and duration variables, we not only created a unique listening experience, but also a lasting one. By the end of the song, the music has imprinted the terrain with valleys, dips, and ridges.
