RhythmSynthesis

Interfaces for visual music composition

Ryan Raffa

Originating as an investigation into the relationships between rhythm and technology, RhythmSynthesis applies color, shape, and sound to demonstrate how our understanding of visual music, computation, and tangible, audio-visual interactions can be applied as considerations in musical compositions. As an instrument, the final piece allows for experimentation, rewards for mastery, and is a vehicle for expression. For more on this project: ryanraffa.com/parsons/thesis/
