音の彫刻 (literally 'sculpture of sound') is part of an iterative study exploring the aesthetic visual potential of digital audio datas extraction and analysis.
In order to explore audio datas as a material, Tony Broyez developed a custom software in c++/opengl: audio datas can be captured from any source and visualised through a set of algorithms, exported to an XML format to be recreated later and the vector-based visual output can be scaled and saved to the disk at any resolution.
Using a specific category of sounds, one algorithm generates organic, nature inspired, flower-like geometrical shapes.
Two of those procedurally generated images (at 18,000 * 18,000 pixels) are currently used in a wall covering project for offices designs in the United States. It was part of a collaboration with american photo-based artist Shoshannah White.
This particular piece, 音の彫刻, is a composition of 2 audio-reactive images post-processed with film grain and glitch art technics.
