sound profiler

A photo manipulation to pull out a wave form.
  [vote for,

Looking around there are a lot of things that don't make sound. A row of books on a library shelf, a placement of tide barrier rocks at the end of the local beach or even a crack in your driveway.

What would they sound like?

Use a cellphone camera and take a photo showing the traceline edge of the subject choosen. Software isolates the edge line and feeds it into a audio player.

Is that really the sound of my bodies shadow line profile? Yes but I did have to do some manipulative scaling, dear.

       [Ian] Nice bit of kit. Makes me imagine a composer drawing sonograms directly as an artist on a tablet. A synesthetic rendering of music.   

       My idea would feed into the Virtual ANS software as it processes photos to make a single sonogram waveform. The photo subject usally being an edge or traverse of some object that will render a waveform.   

       Because the form would usually be short, (the Grand Canyon might give a longer stitched waveform) I imagine,the sound bite would be hard to compose with.

       Well yes, that is the whole point of the virtual ANS software.

       ANS was still a score writing device primarily. Not that a piece of art or a piece of nature can't be sounded out with the image processor to audio for fun.
