Visualizing Sleep Sound by Jamie XX

I’ve been terrible at blogging lately. Partly it’s because I’m trying to wrap around my head on what I want to build here at ITP. Though one constant thing in my workflow has always been music. I’m embarrassed to say this, but I can listen to one song over and over. I find it therapeutic. One song in particular has been this track by Jamie XX.

After a few listens, I thought about how Jamie XX’s music has so many layers and a lot of texture to it’s production. Inspired by this I began to just try and code his album cover in P5:

What’s great about this exercise is that I’m slowly piecing together everything I’m learning (i.e. objects, constructor functions, color, etc). Right now I’m taking baby steps and coded these shapes literally. With help from Stephanie Koltun, I’ve decided to slowly build this project out with more interaction and maybe even hook it up to a pcomp project.

Stay tuned.
