Music-Visual Scrolls

Brandon Kader

Paint Music and Visuals with a paintbrush


A musical instrument that plays sound and generates visuals projected on fabric. Sensors are attached at the top of the scrolls so that when the fabric is touched with the paintbrush, a sound is played and visuals pop up on the fabric. The system is in MAX/MSP/JITTER with analog input from a serial connection with Arduino. The sounds are composed in Logic and visuals are a combination of a particle system, composited video and p5.js.
