Microsonic Landscapes by Realitat – Transforming sound into matter

Created by Realitat, Microsonic Landscapes is an algorithmic exploration of the music. Each favoured album is converted into a three dimensional representation and “proposes a new spatial and unique journey by transforming sound into matter/space: the hidden into something visible.”

Albums include works by Portishead, Anthony and the Johnsons, Nick Drake, Einsturzende Neubauten and Für Alina. Each objects mounts layers of tracks represented in a single cylinder. Created with Processing, printed with Makerbot.
