A metaphor for Synestesia method

Using the method I have been developing one can generate music (midi files) from any pictures. Sculptural work is a good metaphor for the method: the sculptor starts from a block of stone or tree which inspires toward a certain end result. Synestesia Method is based on filtering pixels away and on using several selectable parameters. Going back to the sculpture metaphor, using parameters reminds of looking the sculpture from different angles or in lightning and environments. The picture on which the music piece is based and the list of parameters together form the metascore of the composition. The challenge is to find pictures generating interesting music. LAURI GRÖHN
