Gooey by Aishwarya Gouthaman

COURSE: ART 448: Coding for Graphic Design


Gooey was created using Processing, a language and development environment created by Casey Reas and Ben Fry. To analyze amplitude and beats from the .wav file. In the composition itself, I used bezier curves to capture the organic nature of the amplitude of the music throughout the song, it rotates and changes shape based on the music. The flower constructed of flowers shows represents the beats through the song.

Gooey is the visualization of the song of the same name by a Glass Animals. It combines the aesthetics of the song into a visual and tangible experience. The changing, rotating strokes move from the center, reacting to music in a sort of interpretative dance, while the circles change color based on the beat of the song. It showcases how various layers of the sound come together to create a song that we enjoy.
