Abstract Sound Manipulation

As I was doing research for my upcoming presentation about HTML and CSS in interactive new media artworks, I stumbled upon this really neat example of an abstract sound file on a website. I guess I am still in the spirit of remixing!

Here, the artist, who goes by the name ‘reaktorplayer’ remixes various electronic sounds such as computer loading noises, static, and vibrations to create a whole new sound piece that is upbeat and quite catchy and enjoyable. This is very interesting as the artist takes what we consider everyday noise and translates it into a style that is similar to modern music we enjoy today. As well, for a visual, he interprets what the composition may look like if we were able to see sound. The vivid geometric shapes floating around in the dark void really opens up our imagination!
