Configurator [Processing]

Configurator is an interactive 3D music visualization system created by Kristopher Collins aka movax using Processing. A live audio signal is analyzed and the data is used to generate and modulate 3D objects.

The system was designed to acheive a balance between generative complexity and human aesthetic sense. For example, color palettes (human created) are harvested and mutated (programmatically) from the Adobe Kuler website. Similarly, the 3D forms are based on user created 2D outlines. These outlines are then extruded parametrically in many different ways, all able to be controlled by the audio signal. This allows the user to specify a set of aesthetic guidelines for object creation, while still exploiting unexpected generative avenues.
