So I’m finally getting the hang of Photoshop, admittedly all the papertoys I’m designing at the moment are a Frankenstein’s monster mixture of Photoshop and Powerpoint, but I’m getting there.
One of my university projects at the moment is visual communication, a sub-task of this was to visually communicate a piece of music without using any lyrics.
I chose “Valley Of The Mountain King” for my piece of music (because it’s an awesome track). My final composition consists of 19 spheres with a colour scheme inspired by sliced kiwi and limes.
Each of the spheres represents 10 seconds of the track and has the visual line of the audio bent around in a circle. I thought this was a good way to show the music in an appealing way. You can see the music starts of quiet and slow by the both the size of the spheres and the size of the inner yellow audio track. But as the track gets louder and faster the spheres increase in size and the yellow audio tracks become more erratic.
The order of the spheres are arranged in order from left to right in a “footstep” orientation because when I listened to the tack it reminded me of tip-toeing.
Overall I think this was a successfully piece.
