For our final in pure data I wanted to give PD GEM a shot. I wanted to try to link up sounds with visuals. Or at least have the sounds affect the visuals. Unfortunately my attempts failed. In a way I made a visualizer but that held no meaning for me. My first Patch was a series of squares that would increase in size as the sound got louder. I then wanted to try to connect the squares to some video but when I applied a cursor and rotate object I could not seem to unlink the rotation factor that was applied to the squares despite the fact that I only wanted this to affect the video. The last sketch links the mouse location to the video rotation. It also links the volume to the mixing of the two videos. Unfortunately the size of the video file can not be uploaded so I am only attaching the patches without files. Below is a sample video of some of the test. One of the limitations I think of the fix film option is that you can not add more than two videos??? Anyways I am hoping to continue to explore PD within the realm of visualization and how that might be affected by music or vice versa.
