Spiralab generates 3D models directly from sound waves. There are multiple versions written in both Reaktor and Cycling74 Max. This article includes video demos, UI screenshots, and graphics output at screen resolution.
All these videos were made with the Cyling74 version.Please note, rendering these videos for Youtube, reduces video quality due to compression artifacts. The actual video output is in OpenGL and at full screen resolution.
First Spiralab Video: The Buzz
Spiro3D sprang to life...with a buzz! Here she is! See the page below for an online video.This video preloads and starts playing automatically. If it has not completed preloading, you will need to press the PLAY button twice.
1.1. Basic Quaternal-modulated Sphere
This sphere is made from three sine oscillators, with basic quaternal modulation, projected into a OpenGL space. The camera's point of view is adjustable, and can also spin around the object.
1.2. Soft, Gentle Swirls through AV Polyphony
This effect was made with FM modulation at different frequencies through each video dimension.
1.3. First Steps Towards Nebula Modeling
This uses a Bernoulli algorithm to generate clusters in a 3D spiral shape.
1.4. FM Modulation of Frozen, Sliced, Spiralized Spheres
Here are some screen captures of the user interface and images generated by Spiralab.
