Jacob’s post about bird patterns actually reminded me of this really cool video that I first saw last semester! This guy, Andy Thomas, created a visualization of different bird sounds by feeding bird calls into a computer to activate particle effects. What strikes me is the way that his video seems to capture the sound of each bird with such precision, even though the graphics are very abstract. I think it’s quite amazing how he was able to achieve a result that looks and feels so organic, even though it was all through coding.
