PUSH MUSIC POP MUSIC

Push Music Pop Music (PM2) provides a chronological music visualization within a perceptible structure and navigable space.
PM2 is Midi visualized in 3D space.
PM2 is an OpenFrameworks/C++ application that takes MIDI data from a linear composition created in a multi-track audio application and visualizes the data in 3D through OpenGL. The result are intricate graphics depicting subtle automations within music that are often overlooked by more traditional, subjective VJ’ing approaches. We believe that a detailed synchronization of this kind will make evident a close relationship between patterns in music and visuals. There is not only a synchronicity in time, but also in the nature of sonic and visual elements.
