The Brief

We crafted two digital art interactive projects participating in a contest by Whitestone. The artists were challenged to elaborate some audio reactive visual using Mike Gao's track Adventura.

Solution

Our experience with interactive 3D content creation and audio reactive visualizations played a major role in the creation process. Ispired by Mike Gao's music we elaborated two distinct approaches: "The hole" plays with rhythmic light while "Polyland" leverages the power of animated 3D shapes.
We used Three.js to build the 3D environment for both projects. We wrote custom shaders and post processing filters to achieve the desidered effect: a mesmerizing lights trip in "the hole" and, in "polyland", an obscure and misterious world.

After that we took advantage of the power of web audio API to analyze the track and extract beats while using low and high frequencies to rhythmically animate our experiments.

Results

Two trips, two sensational adventures, leading the audience into an oneiric world.
The hole: in a triangular corridor a floating blob crosses spatial geometries, creating extraordinary games of light. Polyland: Three platonic solids give life to the abstract world of "Polyland": thanks to them it is possible to isolate bass, voice and melody of Mike Gao's track, adding to it a somewhat alienating dimension.
