First comes Pcomp, then comes ICM, now they’re married

I was one of the unfortunate ones who missed synthesis because I was officiating my best friend’s wedding. But here I was once again marrying two things: pcomp and ICM.

Code for p5 can be found here: https://alpha.editor.p5js.org/projects/H1wosAX1l

From my last post tagged ICM, I talked about Jamie XX and how it’s been therapeutic music to listen to while I work. I wanted to keep things simple for this and I replicated the image of his Colour album in p5. Using constructors, objects, and arrays this time, I was able to come up with a working sketch.

Afterwards, I thought about hooking this up to the synthesis lab with a simple potentiometer. After a few tweaks in the code and the mapping, I could something workable. I even took the liberty of overlaying a snippet of the Jamie XX song “Sleep Sound” for the video.
