Cool Tool – Photosounder

6 01 2009

Check out this tool : photosounder. It converts image into sound & vice versa.   Immediate question that would come to your mind is why would you wanna do that?

Well, there are many things you can actually do with this.

1. Converting image to sound could be an unconventional form of encryption.

2. You can draw music on screen. Of course, complicated the music gets, difficult (or impossible?) it will become to actually draw it. But nonetheless, you can create simple beats this way. check out various sounds made using this tool on (There is a small jukebox player on the right side.)

I found it interesting because I haven’t seen anything like this before, so there is that WOW factor.

Lemme know if you think of any cool application of this tool..

There’s actually a couple of other things it can be used for. One of my friends just made a pretty interesting industrial-ambient-horror track using it for every instrument and sound effect (it’s the top example both on the right corner of the page and on the Examples page), by either using an image to make a sound or modifying the sound of an instrument.

I for one am personally more interested in using Photosounder to learn how music and instruments are made (as images) and use that knowledge to create music myself, and experiment in powerful ways with new sounds, to become a painter of sounds of sorts (and then try and become the Salvador Dali of music) ;-).

Interesting blog by the way! 🙂
