Image-Based Spatialization

Eric Lyon

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


An approach to spatialization is described in which the pixels of an image determine both spatial and other attributes of individual elements in a multi-channel musical texture. The application of this technique in the author’s composition Spaced Images with Noise and Lines is discussed in detail. The relationship of this technique to existing image-to-sound mappings is discussed. The particular advantage of modifying spatial properties with image filters is considered.
