Transmutation is a custom audio visualization application created for Speak Onion’s live performance on 01/27/2012 @ The Charleston, NYC. It includes four audio reactive scenes, the parameters for which can be manipulated via a GUI in real-time, and splitscreen capability.

The application and source code can be downloaded from the github repository.

Parameters for each scene are mapped to logarithmically spaced averages retrieved from an FFT analysis of the input audio. These parameters include sensitivity, scale and position of elements in each scene, and can be tweaked in real-time using a GUI.

This project was coded using Processing. Some of the code is based on examples from Daniel Shiffman’s – The Nature of Code.
