I’ve been beavering away on new music this week. I also bought some software to help me clean up a live recording of my recent piece with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. These two things came together when I put the track I was working on into the editor and realised it looked quite like a night time image of a city in the fog. I’ve never been to Chicago but from what I’ve seen in photos and film it’s not a million miles away. The visualisation above is a spectrogram which plots the energy in different frequency bands from low at the bottom to high at the top. Time is along the horizontal axis but that is not always be the case….
This image is from an amazing web-app thing I found. It will plot a circular spectrogram of any file on soundcloud. It’s programmed by a guy called Lee Martin. You can make it work for any track by changing the address:
Click here to see and hear a real-time circular spectrogram of ‘Chicago in the fog’. It works only on newer browsers.
If that’s not working for you here is the track, it’s not quite finished but I’d quite like to know what you think of it.
Hope you enjoyed that,
