PixiVisor is a clever tool for audio / visual experiments. It’s a simple and fun cross-platform application that consists of two parts: Transmitter and Receiver. The Transmitter converts the low-resolution video (static image or GIF animation) to sound, pixel by pixel. This lets you listen to the sound of your image. But the main function of the Transmitter is to transmit the signal to the receiving devices.

The Receiver then converts the sound back to video. You can set the colour palette for this video, and record it to an animated GIF file. This is a more experimental kind of app that lets you explore the relationship between sounds and images.

Muon is a music visualisation app for iPad that generates endlessly varying organic animations in time to your music. When left alone, the Evolution Engine ensures that your screen is filled with fascinating, ever-changing animations.

If a form evolves that you don’t like, a single tap or shake generates a new mutant universe. It also includes an intuitive control surface editor that makes customising simulation parameters quick and easy, while switch-bay patch-panels enable you to customise how the visualiser mutates and responds to touch and audio stimuli.
