Abstract

We have created a music visualization system that pairs a graphic representation with colored LEDs. This was achieved by parsing MIDI signals from an electric piano/keyboard that’s is connected to the system. Those signals were then interpreted into colors and shapes that were added to the graphic display. Our graphic display was made using OpenGL and SDL. The color data was also sent over WIFI to four custom LED controllers which were built around the Arduino MKR 1010 WIFI board which controls the LEDs using pulse width modulation. The purpose of this system is so that a musician may have a dynamic graphic and light display that responds to their playing in real-time.
