Matthias Dittrich is an interaction design student at the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam, Germany. In his website he showcases a variety of fresh and promising work, accessed through a dynamic interface. Shown here are images from his "Narrative 2.0" project, a series of music track visualizations from different artists, such as Queen, The Chemical Brothers, Moloko and Beethoven.
As Matthias explains: "Narrative 2.0 visualises music. The different music tracks were segmented into single channels. These channels are shown in a fanlike structure where lines move away from the centre with the flow of time. The angle of the line changes according to the volume, and when reaching a higher level, the channel becomes highlighted in orange. The visualisation does not necessarily return exact information, however, the order and uniformity of the song can still be perceived."
Image 1 is a visualization of "Familiar Feelings" by Moloko, while image 2 shows "Apache" by Ennio Morricone.
