Sound of Your Soul by Therisse Martinez

    Sound of Your Soul is based around a MAX patch the artists has programmed which uses parts of a person's being to create an individualized piece of music. The patch analyzes a person's first and last name, uses a microphone to record their voice, a webcam to take their picture, and uses a heart monitor to document their heart rate. These characteristics are used to drive the tempo, timbre, key, mode, and pitch. The resulting music is unique to the individual and thus is "the sound of their soul."

      I think this project is brilliant, and has the potential to grow into a new way of recording, processing, and recalling our sensory experiences.
      Cheers to your creativity and effort!
