Music Visualization achieved via bridging the connection among MIDI Keyboard, TouchDesigner and Ableton. Users are able to press on keys and generate different visual effects according to the strength of playing and mapping of key.
The keyboard was divided into four areas and each portion with 22 keys. Each section was mapped to TouchDesigner and the input from MIDI keyboard reflects the numerical value of strength and key location. Both inputs were recorded and utilized to adjust key modifications with Ableton, and further connected with TouchDesigner to formulate visual effects.
This is a collaborative project by Ellie Huang, Achal Shah, Siyu Sun and Kelly Xu.
