BEAP + Vizzie Exercises
I used the virtual keyboard and connected it directly to the granular oscillator. The granular oscillator is then connected to an audio effect. The audio effect that I used at the end of the signal chain before sending it to Vizzie is the “returner”. The audio output is then separately sent to Vizzie in order to have each range of values affect either the brightness, the contrast, or the saturation of the video. Then, the “returner” and the gate, which is connected to the keyboard’s gate, are attached to the signal, which is then attached to the stereo output. The output of the signal is also connected to the audio splitter which is what allows different ranges of data to modify things in Vizzie. In order to make the amplitude of the audio output determine the visibility of the video, I used audio2vizzie to get the data and attached it to the video fader between the video and a black background.
I used three separate sequencers for each drum track. These were then connected to an audio effect. The audio effects that I used are the returner, the frequency shifter and the classical vocoder. I then attached the audio effects to an audio mixer and finally to a stereo output. For the videos, I imported 3 different files and mixed them together with a video mixer. The audio data is what determines when each video will be displayed, since I used audio2vizzie to determine this.
