Converting images to music using their colour properties
MetadataShow full item record
Music is associated to colors since ancient years. Different mappings between attributes of sound and images allow the efficient conversion between the two types of media. The proposed method for converting images to music using the concept of chromaticism provides the area of computer music with a parameterized environment for audio-visual presentations. The auditory display of colour images may bring the different ways that a listener perceives a musical piece (because of colour transitions) to light. A design template for chromatic synthesis is described. A short example, based on a graphical digital icon, demonstrates the preliminary results.
