    It’s nice to see your project evolve since your initial post a few weeks ago. One of the things I wanted to hear most from your presentation was how the algorithms will incorporate with the music! You might just be thinking more about that further down the line, but I’m intrigued by the idea of using beats, frequencies, and other patterns as inputs for your algorithm.

  • Emily –

    I really like your inspiration and overview of music in your presentation, as I love music for the same unique reasons that you mentioned. The overlap of using your applied mathematics to art and aesthetics is very interesting, in implementing fractals, in helping visualize music production, in particular concert venues. You discussed a great deal of your study in mathematics and its application to aesthetics, which I appreciated. The initial sketching helped describe your vision, in making your eventual music video as a representation of the music that you love. In particular, the mesh concept looks great, and I really look forward to seeing this video. Overall, the presentation was very well put together and had some nice visuals themselves in describing what your video might look like. In using Python 3 and Adobe Aftereffects to help make these musical visualizations, what do you imagine would be the hardest challenging in integrating the two? Would there be any alternative software as oppose to Adobe Aftereffects that you think could work – and if not, what makes Aftereffects the ideal software to use? Lastly, I was wondering if you could provide any equations or code that you’ve done so far to create what you’ve created so far, that seemed the only thing missing with the presentation, that could be in your blog post.

    Statement of meaning:
    I like how your slides were images with text laid over top. This was very aesthetically pleasing.
    Artist as a questionnaire:
    Have you thought about changing what happens based on frequency?
    Neutral questions:
    Have you thought about mixing the moving squares and original idea presented?

    As a statement of meaning, I like how Emily’s project is firmly at the intersection of her studies of applied mathematics and arts and her personal interests like EDM and house music. I feel like this method to select a project is the best way to ensure you follow through and stay interested in a project.

    I really like that you are taking this project to a more conceptual and non physical place as I think it will resonate with more people.
    I think music selection will be one of the most important aspects of the whole thing and I am excited to see, and hear, what you select and how you use that as inspiration for the visuals.

    I really liked how much background you gave in your presentation. The inspiration from electronic music I think complements your project, and gives it more depth and context. I’m curious how many fractal patterns you’re planning on creating and if you are actually going to have time to create a full video… Regardless I’m very excited to see how it goes!
