GeoSound is an interactive web page that generates sound from analyzing the rotation of geometric objects. Though this generation is, in some ways, directly influenced by the user, the user cannot change the patterns and pitches created by the shapes (except by increasing the “randomness”). This project caught my eye for two reasons, the first being the interactivity that I just mentioned. The second was the use of sound. This project piqued my interest in generative sound, especially combined with abstraction. I don’t believe that music should only be for people who play classical instruments, or for pop stars. Programs like this bring the joy of creating music closer to people who might not have much of a musical background, which I think is something special.
