Presentation


Overview

We are fascinated by the beauty of a view and become enchanted by music. These two art forms tune our brains differently but with equal impressiveness. Listening to moving music causes the brain to release dopamine and as a result we feel good; it’s the same as when we eat something delicious or are touched by a loved ones. Boosting the aural experience with visual stimulus reinforces the effect and creative coder Simo Santavirta has spent the last decade working around this phenomena.

In this session Simo, the mind behind online music visualiser APEXvj, will discuss his creations in the field of music visualisation from visual and technological point of view. He shows and tells how he ditched the rat wheel and old technology to be able practise his craft just for the sake of it.

There will be plenty of eye/ear candy and coding tricks for everyone!
