No photoshop or illustrator used here, this poster was made entirely with processing[processing.org]¬† This poster was generated by computer analysis of the sound waves [FFT] from Pearl Jam’s song Brain of J.¬† The properties of the sound control the color, size and direction of each line in the picture.
I created this for a poster contest at 76design where everyone had 2 weeks to design a poster based on this song. I am very excited to see all of the entries tomorrow. What is the prize you ask?¬† Bragging rights!¬† The developers want to take down the designers at their own game…¬† wish us luck.¬† Also, the best posters will be printed.
This was the last of many poster iterations.¬† I posted my first attempt to flickr as merely a milestone. However; I am much happier with this image as the concept has more to do with the lyrical context of the song.
I wish I had the time, but while rushing tweaks for the contest deadline I was unable to run the algorithm on a different song to compare and contrast.¬† But I will once I find the free time.
I will link to some of the other posters entered in the contest tomorrow once they are officially released.¬† Also, if you were paying attention to my last post on processing you noticed that I mentioned a suprise… well… I can’t post that until I suprise the contest participants tomorrow. patience.
