What does music look like? Representation of sound has taken many forms over time, from sinusoidal wave patterns, through to random algorithm-based visualisations based on the amplitude of an audio signal. One aspect of music visualisation that has n... Read More about Exploring Musical Creativity through Interactive Cymatics.
