We crafted two digital art interactive projects joining a contest launched by Whitestone. The artists were asked to elaborate some audio reactive visual using Mike Gao’s track Adventura.
Our experience with interactive 3D content creation and audio reactive visualizations played a major role in the creation process.We used Three.js to build the 3D environment for both projects. We wrote custom shaders and post processing filters to achieve the desired effect: a mesmerizing lights trip in "the hole" and an obscure and mysterious world in “Polyland”. 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.
Inspired 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. The results are two fun experiences where music, technology and visual art combine themselves in harmony.
