No More Image Music Creation

rgb-music-fail

Just recently, I found out about a program that plays colors and images as music. So, I followed the link to the program. I would be excited about it… if it wasn’t shut down. I really can’t describe how it works, but CrunchGear described it well:

“…converts the RGB, Red, Green, and Blue, values of every pixel of an image and plays a 3 note harmony based on the RGB values. It reads the pixels from top left to bottom right playing a song a long the way.”

I read around the net that it was awesome, but too bad I never got to try it. Unfortunately, the program was shut down because there was a patent on technology like this, and the owner, Kenji Kojima, was forced to stop (you’d understand if you read the letter above.) There are still some samples online, click here.

  1. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?Thanks
