Paint By Music #1

Due to some dumb-ass security restrictions, this will not work if you have a window or tab open that plays back sound or video, like youtube, pandora or other sites that use flash to play back sound. You can close the offending windows and this should start drawing. Vote for this “bug” at the adobe bug tracker.

An experiment using AS3’s SoundMixer’s computeSpectrum method, first time i’ve ever used it. More deets and source later, still need to tweak settings and pick music that works better than what I have (seems like it likes picking up drums, which doesn’t happen till maybe 2 minutes in).

Awesome music by Tycho.
