If anyone is working with computers try combing digital imaging and music
where students and teachers can show how you can communicate expressiviely
through sound/ music / rhythm.
You need a program called X<>Pose by ArKaos and Steinberg, combined with any
pic formats e.g Adobe Photoshop.
To take full benefit of X<>Pose’s features, you will probably want some
additional equipment:
•A MIDI controller and a MIDI interface. This is essential for controlling
X<>Pose’s visual effects in realtime (you can do this from the computer
keyboard as well, but then you will not have access to velocity, pitch bend
and modulation wheel).
In actual fact it is possible to develop themes/ ideas that allow music and
visuals to communicate a mood pictorially and through sound and to actually
perform in real time, with each performance being different.
The combination of talents allows for real collaborative interpretation by art
and music students or individuals who want to add another dimension to their
chosen art form.
At the moment X<>Pose is only available for Mac's, check out their site on the
You can also set slide shows that correspond in animation order to music that
may have been taped or digitised or even sounds created through sound editing
programs such as Cool Edit.
