RGB Experimental Music Laboratory Converts Image to Music for Windows / Mac OS X

RGB Experimental Music Laboratory

RGB MusicLab converts RGB (Red, Green and Blue) value of an image to chromatic scale sounds. The program reads RGB value of pixels from the top left to the bottom right of an image. One pixel makes a harmony of three note of RGB value, and the length of note is determined by brightness of the pixel. RGB value 120 or 121 is the center C, and RGB value 122 or 123 is added a half steps of the scale that is C#. Pure black that is R=0, G=0, B=0 is no sounds.

It is not an impression of paintings or photographs of a composer. It reads a score from an image data directly. The result of music is one of art forms, however I am aiming to develop another art forms based on these studies and the concept.

You can experiment with aural interpretations from Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci to your personal digital photos and drawings. You may use the music for anything you like, such as for your viedo, your blog, your performance and your everyday life.

Quick Start:
Double click on MonaLisa icon. Program is opened. Drag-and-Drop your JPEG image (such as a digital camera image) onto the right image panel (1 on the top figure). Mosaic of the image is made on the left panel. Click on "Create RGB Music" (9 on the top image). Progress bar apears. Wait a short while. QuickTime controller apears. You can listen your music. If you like to save it to MIDI file, click on "Save Music" (10 on the top figure).
