Ryan Henderson is based in Dallas, Texas and has been creating sound-driven digital art since 2015. He has a Master’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering and no formal training in the arts. One would think that engineering and art do not mix, but through the use of mathematics Ryan has found an avenue to explore art in a new direction.
Grounded by engineering equations, his artwork is formed by extracting the frequencies and amplitudes that make up a song and then digitally painting it. The process allows the viewer to visualize the dynamics of a song: quiet moments, crescendos, even a single snare tap. This gives the piece of work an aesthetic as well as physical meaning. Each piece of art is unique to the song, algorithm, and creativity Ryan puts into it.
