This is an audio visualizer built with OpenFrameworks. The add ons I used in this project were ofxAudioAnalyzer, which I used to extract audio information like rms and power in real time, and ofxFboBlur, which is applied to the rotating circles to create a blur effect when the rms is above a certain threshold. I wanted to use these two add ons because I knew I was going to make an audio visualizer, so I needed an audio addon, and a visual addon. Audioanalyzer was essential to this program because it analyzes sound in real time. The way I designed the color light wheel is with primary CYMK colors, and so when the circles overlap each other they create new colors based on which other ones they are overlapping with. I thought it would be interesting to look at, and when I played it for myself I found it very easy to lose focus and stare at the visuals as the music plays.
