Ned Resnikoff (but not this Ned Resnikoff).
I'm a musician who's combined my interests in music and mathematics by applying wavelet filters to audio analysis. I am working on software tools to make sound and music something we can see, understand, and modify in new ways.
my youtube page.
Spectral data adds a visual dimension to sound, which can guide the ear, show musical structure and, I hope, amplify the listener's emotional reaction to the music itself. Like an electron microscope, these images reveal a beautiful and little-known world that is already present in music.
I use my own recordings, or the work of musicians who give me permission to post the movies.
