What does music look like? Representation of music has taken many forms over time, from musical notation [16], through to random algorithm-based visualisations based on the amplitude of an audio signal [19]. One aspect of music visualisation that has... Read More about CymaSense: a real-time 3D cymatics-based sound visualisation tool.
