Destroy an image with sound

Mar 17 2014 | 12:02 pm

Hey guys! I’m having trouble trying to figure out how to destroy a still image (I can also do video if necessary) using sounds that I’m creating with a mic, all in Max/MSP. Can anyone offer any advice? Thanks!

Though destroy sounds pretty vague, Andrew’s Jitter Recipes have plenty examples to get you started:

Thanks! I’ve been looking through the Jitter recipes and just can’t seem to find what I’m looking for…only things that are similar that may or may not work. I essentially want to scream into a microphone, and the image is supposed to destroy itself through the soundwaves using the patch that I create. I don’t care how it’s destroyed–pixelated, glitched, distorted, etc.–just as long as it no longer exists (to the audience) in that digital form by the end of the media performance.

In terms of how I would like the still image destroyed? Mmm then I would definitely say pixelation, glitching (or something that is similar to that–I know the 4Mixer in the Vizzie patches has something that’s like it if one of the knobs is selected, but I’m not sure if that particular pre-made patch would be applicable here), and then a shattering/splitting effect before it goes to black, and there’s nothing left.

I hope I sufficiently answered your question. Is there anymore information that you need?
