Northern Lights

by Bleed
Silver

For the official Norwegian travel guide to Norway, we created an application that converts light values into musical notes, with the purpose of creating a promotional soundtrack for Norway, by filming the northern lights and recording the music the application creates. We sent the producer Jon Brown from Archwood Music to Lofoten, equipping him with this app, and the possibility to adjust, tweak and add his own samples into the music application to create original, living musical compositions.

The main principles of the app is to adjust to different input sources, one for piano and one for synth, and either manually place them on a grid system from the camera, or let them jump around randomly looking for light pixels, based on the values the two input sources gets, it plays a corresponding tone of music.
