Visual Harmony - A Graphical Music Box
- App Store Info
DescriptionImmerse yourself in the stunning and hypnotic effects of Visual Harmony!
In Visual Harmony, each note takes the form of a colorful shape rotating about the center of the screen. When the note rotates past the line, the note is played. Each note rotates twice as fast as the point preceding it. These simple rules produce stunning visual patterns and hypnotic melodies.
Watch as the shapes form spinning galaxies and winding spirals. Sit in awe as the periodic patterns merge back into a line only to quickly go back to generating complex geometric shapes. Listen to hypnotic uniquely generated melodies . Choose a slow speed and meditate to the the unusual tune, or speed things up for an overwhelming onslaught of spinning sight and chaotic sound!
The Whitney Music Box is a digital take on the classic music box. John Whitney first described the idea of spinning shapes producing notes in his book “Digital Harmony”, and the first digital Whitney Music Box was created by Jim Bumgardner, and is hosted on his website at http://wheelof.com/whitney/ .
At Excelltech Mobile we found Jim’s web app so engaging, we had to create our own portable version for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. “Visual Harmony - A Graphical Music Box” is the result. While staying true to the original idea of the Whitney Music Box, Visual Harmony allows the user to interact with the setup and the function of the device.
* Change the size, shape, speed and color of the spinning shapes.
* Switch from chromatic scale to a user defined sequence of notes.
* Move the line that plays the notes.
