Our final project is an audio visualizer named Isho, derived from the Sino-Japanese word for “impression”. We begin with a flat landscape made up of 88 horizontal lines spanning the canvas. As the music plays, the landscape changes, evolving with the song-of-choice’s duration, peaks, amplitudes. By the end of the song, the music has imprinted the terrain with valleys, dips, and ridges.
