Algorithm and Music

Studies – Bachelor of Arts

Sakuya Miesczalok, Antonia Aschenbrenner and I created an algorithm that we used to analyze different genres based on different titles and generated an album cover with a suitable, customized shape from the HE_Mesh Library.

We have assigned each generated form of the Mesh Library to a genre, examples of which can be seen below. The factors were: volume, speed and clock. We altered the code until the movement and distortion of the shape started to fit the track.

I generated and post-edited the covers below using the code we created together.
