Visualising sound - 20 Hz

20 Hz from Semiconductor on Vimeo.

To gain more inspiration for visualising sound, I began to branch out of researching into animations and looked into other ways that people have portrayed sound. 

This video was really inspiring through the shapes and distortions that a geo-magnetic storm created in the Earth's upper atmosphere. I found this video interesting through how this process of using data from a radio array that was captured at 20 Hertz, created these surreal formations. It reminded me of Mikhail Tsekhanovsky's animation, Pochta 1929, through how the monotone format melded into surreal shapes and perspectives. The sound reminds me of sand, and also the imagery reminds me of a changing landscape as it moves and takes forms of water through the ripple like portrayal it takes shape as the audio increases. The actual shape of the audio near the end of the video takes on a icicle format as it rises with the audio.
