Taylor, R., Boulanger, P., and Torres, D. (2006). Real-Time Music Visualization Using Responsive Imagery. 8th International Conference on Virtual Reality, Laval, France, April 26-30, pp. 62-69.

We present a music visualization system that allows musical feature data to be extracted in real-time from live performance and mapped to responsive imagery. We have created three example mappings between music and imagery, illustrating how music can be visualized through responsive video, virtual character behaviour, and interactive features inside an immersive virtual space. The system is implemented using a visual programming paradigm, enhancing its ease-of-use and making it suitable for use by collaborative teams containing both artists and scientists.
