Music Visualisation with SoundManager2

Jacob Seidelin has created what he believes to be the first music visualisation demo using the canvas element and SoundManager2! Playing Radiohead’s Idioteque, the demo displays frequency bars, waveforms, binary outputs and create an image of Thom Yorke, lead singer of Radiohead.

I’m not much of a Flash person and I guess I just hadn’t been paying attention since I only found about the new audio features when Scott Schiller added support for them in his SoundManager2 JavaScript/Flash library and later posted a (very cool) favicon VU-meter that would just dance all night to the sound of your music. Since then I’ve been wanting to do something with those abilities since I figured canvas and live audio data would be a perfect match for some groovy audio visualization.
