Real-time graphical music representation program
Synaesthesia is a program that represents music graphically in real time as coruscating field of fog and glowing lines. It is intended as a visual accompaniment to music. Synaesthesia seeks to provide not just a visual representation of sound, but a representation of how sound is perceived.
Its display combines information about frequency, location, and diffuseness of sound. The display is sufficiently detailed to allow to distinguish several individual instruments, singers, or special effects on screen by their location, shape and color, and sufficiently fast to distinguish individual drum beats and notes.
