    Abstract Summary:

    Project Agitato attempts to represent the evolving music information within a single image frame, in the hope to capture the subjective and perceptual qualities of time expressed in music. The title of the project, named from the music term agitato, depicts the restless agitated style of the music. Each image in this series is generated based on a musical passage from Nicolas Scherzinger’s ‘inter-sax-tive’. For a given moment in time, its spectrum of frequencies is analyzed and used as the input to construct visual elements with various characteristics. As the music progress, the visual elements accumulate and are composed into a single image that reflects the music material within a defined duration of time, allowing viewers to perceive music passage from a single viewpoint, rather than as a linear experience of time
