Browsing my old HD, i found an older work, what i did in 2006, as a university project.

Its a remake of Hans Richters Rhythm 21, but just a kind of, because i made a sound added version. My first idea was to upload it to vimeo, and get published. While i was waiting for the uploading, i just started to watch the old piece and many ideas came into my mind. I started a new QC project, added OpenCV, and in a few minutes: bingo, i got a kind of connection structure of the richter remake.

So having those coordinates and connection lines it was easy now to send informations via OSC to an audio software, not a specific one, but Bidule seems the first choose. I needed to wait more while vimeo processing the video and i continued thinking about the additional data’s what i can get from the Richter piece. I added some 3D based weight map, and i got a new kind of visual result.

While weight map is working with luminance, its possible to connect pixel brightness with another OSC parameter, and maybe to adjust some audio parameters as well. Probably i will choose a frequency generator, and basic filters (low pass, high pass).
