PixiVisor - Video Over Audio

Sunvox developer Alexander Zolotov has a new app that converts audio to video, or vice versa for video out of your headphone jack.

PixiVisor is available now for PC/Mac/Linux and Android, with an iOS app coming soon.

This multi-platform audio-visual experiment allows you to run video from one device into another through the audio jacks, and mess with it along the way. The results are a 64x64 pixel video at 10 frames per second, which can then be saved to an animated GIF file and shared.

At this point some of you may be thinking, "So fucking what?"

Here is fucking what! Check out this demo of video being routed out of an Android phone's headphone jack, into a Korg Monotron's analog filter, and then out to an iPad! Just as a filter can be used to shape audio, in this case it is shaping the video.

More demo videos are available on Alexander's YouTube channel.

I'm interested in making YouTube videos from still images modulated by my tracks. This looks like a cool app for that.

Yes! I can't wait to see the videos that people come up with using this app! It is just $2 on Android, so I imagine we'll see the same on iOS. That should be low enough for people to take a chance on creating some interesting visuals for their music videos.

this video to audio app might be of immediate interest (already on ios). different limitations, but higher resolution. have it but haven't tried it so can't yet speak to quality; reviews seem positive.
