Sound Visualization: Phase 1

The song I used for Staccato is System Of A Down by Chop Suey. It’s a rock that starts off very slow then gets very intense as the song goes on. The legato song called Tears On The Runaway by Issues. The is a very soft tone throughout the intire song.

Sound Visualization Mashup: Phase 4

This project was pretty fun, it was really nice to mix art and music together, into almost one medium. I think the songs that were chosen were nice, but i do kind of wish i chose my own music, maybe i would have been able to create better designs. I think my biggest struggle with this project was time, i had so many issues with photoshop, and how to set everything up, it was a little annoying at first but i’m glad i know how to animate on photoshop now. If i could go back and fix one thing it would maybe be the animation, i would have really like to have made the lighting sync up wit the staccato beats, but i didn’t have time, otherwise i’d say i’m content with the project. Maybe for the next project i’ll try to personalize it more.

My thoughts about this particular project is that I found it really interesting in the beginning with the drawing out what we heard in the music. It got really complicated once animating came into it, but now I learned something new with animating in Photoshop. I know some things I could’ve worked on is my time management with this project. I know I was really lost on what to do, so next time for a project I would really work on being way better on time management. Overall, I actually  learned a lot about animating, and photoshop. The ending result of my animation I was actually pretty satisfied with because I liked how differently I tried to animate it from everybody else’s animation.

Sound Visualization: Phase 1

The song I used for staccato sketches is called Black Sheep by Metric and for the legato sketches I did the song Teleport 2 Me by Kid Cudi.

The staccato song is a rock song so at the beginning of the song you hear a lot of the electric guitar repeating a certain rhythm and its very fast. The legato song has a lot of humming and a slow rhythm, however it is a mixture of slow and fast rhythm but the overall feel of the song is legato.

Sound Visualization Mashup: Phase 4

My thoughts about this project was that it was a little more complicated since we had to work on it on adobe photoshop, which is something that is still new to me in a way. However, even though I had some of my challenges here and there, overall it was a interesting project to have my work become somewhat alive through animations and adding my own music. I learned how to use photoshop more better so that is really helpful since I want to be a photographer so this is an essential for me. The things i could have done better is with the animations, i wanted to do more, but this was all new to me and I felt like was a mistake on something for a beginner like me, more problems will appear and I will have trouble undoing it since I wanted to finish it on my own time.
