The landscape of sound, 2012

After weeks of researching music, sound art, and abstract form, I create a system which took digital readings of sound waves and converted these digital sound oscillations into 3D surfaces. 

The final modeled surfaces were then cut into wood using a CNC machine to create the physical soundscapes. It was important for the sound to look as if it was vibrating through a everyday product in order to represent audio as a physical element in an environment--otherwise known as the study of cymatics. The soundscapes became the perfect surfaces for a chair and side table.  

These soundscapes were created using the visual sound waves from Symphonia IX (My Wait is U), by Grimes
