Impellent - Video Synthesizer Demo

Synthesizing video is both interesting and rarely explored. Unfortunately most of the videos for it tend to be supremely boring, with nothing but cheesy repetitive blips and blorps for musical accompaniment to the visuals.

DR-OM co-developer Shawn Greenlee has made the first video synth demo I've watched all the way through, with some musical talent added to his tweaking and experimenting, in this video found by MATRIXSYNTH.

Video Description:

Continued developments with realtime graphic synthesis techniques. Impellent is the latest of my "graphic waveshaping" programs realized with MaxMSP. Inputs to the system are two Bodelin digital microscopes, scanning works on paper. Changes in the sonic output are determined by the interpretation of the image data (pixel rows become non-linear transfer functions and effect parameters). Movements on a multitouch trackpad configure this interpretation. Development of Impellent is ongoing. The accompanying sound is played on the DR-OM iOS app (for which I am one of the developers) running through Grand Orbiter and Disaster Transport pedals from Earthquaker Devices.

Buy DR-OM on iTunes: $1.99
