Music Visualization: An Interactive eBook

Project Brief

Objective:

Transform sound into the visual representation of music. Design glyphs or symbols to replace the sound in the piece. Visually compose the piece in either static or motion, using your glyphs to represent the flow of the music.

 

I chose to transform the song The Wheel by SOHN into an interactive ebook. The typography on each page, when tapped, produces a distinct sound. Each individual soundbite served as the inspiration for the specific page it plays on.

 

The interactiveness captures the rich experience of listening to music and the effect it has on its listener. Interactive media in general is an immersive experience, especially when focusing on sound.
