Music Visualization with Ferrofluid & Magnets

Info
In our 3rd semester at Hochschule für Gestaltung Schwäbisch Gmünd we experimented with the possibilities of translating music into visual aesthetics.
Partners: Dilâra Büber, Dimitra Konstantinidou & Stefan Weimeier
Analysis
To fully understand how the music is assembled, what plays into it and why certain things are done in a certain way, we had to analyse all the interacting components and assign a visually interpreted assembly kit to the auditive language.
Translation
Once we analysed the music and interpreted its language into visual forms, we were able to organise the instruments, snippets, loops, vocals and everything else by certain parameters like loudness, roughness, length, intensity, etc. to furthermore translate the parameters into a corresponding visual language.
Materials
Along with the ferrofluid and magnets we experimented with other fluids and combinations such as acrylic, basic and chinese ink, methylated spirits and machine and baby oil in order to achieve the best results.
Analysis + Translation
If you want to understand which auditive component from our analysis became which translation, we joined the initial analysis with our final video.
