Real-Time Synaesthetic Sonification of Traveling Landscapes.

Proceedings of the 5th International Mobile Music Workshop (MMW 2008), Vienna, Austria.
When travelling on a train, many people enjoy looking out
of the window at the landscape passing by. We present
an application that translates the perceived movement of
the landscape and other occurring events such as passing
trains into music. The continuously changing view outside
the window is captured with a camera and translated into
midi events that are replayed instantaneously. This allows
for a reflection of the visual impression, adding a sound dimension
to the visual experience and deepening the state
of contemplation. The application can both be run on mobile
phones (with built-in camera) and on laptops (with a
connected Web-cam). We present and discuss different approaches
to translate the video signal into midi events.
