Turn Photos Into Chords 🔗

Published 05/27/2020 (Permalink 📌)

Inspired by this very very very good talk on polyrythms and how everything (sorta) is a polyrhythm, I started playing around with Glitch again and put together this neat little proof-of-concept app. If you upload a photo, it will extract the color palette from the image and then each main color will be associated with a note, and you can see what kind of music your photos make!

And, it being Glitch, you can remix it and edit your own version! Which is cool!!
