Example of the visualizations of the computer generated music

Atlås, created by Agoston Nagy, “generates music in a conversational cognitive space”. The app basically creates music through programming language in Pure Data and creates graphics with javascript’s p5js library. What I like about this project is that music is not just something that can be heard, but also visualized. The graphics locate the sounds within space, which brings an aspect of cognitive process into the experience of listening. The sounds generated by the machine through coding may seem random and distinct from each other, but through the visuals, such sounds then seem to show a narration and a relationship with each other.
