The project Landwaves was created by the duo, Binaura. The project digitally displays behaviors of fluids in their reaction to sound waves. The frequencies of the sound waves cause the sonification of the pixels controlled by brightness. What I admire about this project is how fluidly the artists combined the two elements of sound and imagery. Although the sounds used are almost unpleasant to listen to, the combination with he digital imagery makes it mesmerizing to watch which is where the artist’s creative talent came in. I would think that if sounds could be visualized, this project is what it would make it look like. I would think he set each sound wave and frequency to a number and used if, else statements to control the behavior of the lines.
