Songs for Insomniacs

Aiming to bring sleep into the day, when the nights seem deprived of it.

soundmachine1

Soundmachine /saʊnd məˈʃiːn/ (noun): A mechanical or electrical device, either taking into it variable input or none at all, and outputting vibrations of any frequency to be detected by organs of hearing, human or otherwise.

Best listened to through headphones or with a decent subwoofer.

soundmachine1 takes an image, converts it to a matrix of data 100 pixels wide and 80 pixels high, and interprets this data generating a piece of music of roughly 10 to 22 hours long.

Iteration 1

soundmachine2

Best listened to through headphones or with a decent subwoofer.

soundmachine2 uses time to control different parameters regarding pitch, length, dynamics and timbre.

Since it outputs no interesting images or video material, I've thrown together a quick Processing sketch to accompany the soundmachine, but don't hesitate to use this machine's output as background noise.
