The Creatures of Prometheus – Generative visualisation of Beethoven’s ballet with Houdini

Latest in the series of self-initiated studies by Simon Russell exploring the combination of the audio and visual, 'The Creatures of Prometheus'  is a generative visualisation of the ballet composed in 1801 by Beethoven.

The animation is driven mainly through a MIDI file. The Houdini setup reads the notation and emits particles using the pitch to derive their height and amplitude to derive their speed. As the volume of each note increases it also effects the colour emitted.
