Animation modulating Audio via MIDI CC

Another experiment using Quartz Composer. I’m using some Low Frequency Oscillators in Quartz Composer to animate layers of my logo graphic. These LFO’s are also sending MIDI CC messages which are being received by Kore’s preset morphing parameter:

-There is an LFO animating the rotation of the logo, this is also modulating the Y axis of the Kore morph parameter grid.
-There are also some LFO’s animating the several radius diameters of the logo, these are modulating the X axis of the Kore morph parameter grid.

I have also assigned a knob on my MIDI controller keyboard to the frequency of the LFO in Quartz Composer which is modulating the radius movement ( which in turn is modulating the X parameter in Kore:) Obviously I could just modulate Kore with MIDI (or the dedicated Kore controller which I also own;) but the exercise here was to have the animation movement modulate some audio. The audio loaded in Kore is from the Reaktor Animated Circuits soundpack.

audio controlling animation v2

Another experiment with audio controlling animation using Quartz Composer. This time its simply the audio amplitude scaling the overall image sizes. The images are randomly generated in multiple directions and falling with a set gravity value.

Audio controlling Animation v1

Audio is being fed into Quartz Composer where it is being divided into multiple frequency bands. Each bands energy is scaled and the values are sent as OSC messages to Animata which animates the graphic.
