Why are music visualizers so artless? Most look like hardware spectrum analyzers or jiggling oscilloscopes. Perhaps it’s because the input data is limited to snapshots of bass and treble levels.
Let’s explore ideas for extracting emotionally meaningful information from audio to produce next-gen visual experiences. Imagine if a screen, garment, or virtual-reality experience could react to chord quality (e.g., major/minor/augmented), subtle tempo changes, solos, or even lyrics. A combination of deeper audio analysis and metadata could create experiences as exciting as movies and live dancers.
