Soundbytes #1 - Train

I have always been interested in how digital cameras work. How they transform light into numbers and those numbers into images. With the Soundbytes series, my goal was to transpose that same information recorded by my camera into something new. To create the music, the average tonal value of each frame was measured and the numbers documented then used to match each tonal value with a note on a three octave scale. The final result allows the viewer to see and hear the change of light in the scene.
