Project 2 Experiment 1 – Recording and Processing Audio and Video

For this first experiment, I took the time to go to two beaches (Rouge Park and Woodbine) to record a few video and audio clips. They will be the basis from where the project will be built upon. Tools used were a Canon dslr camera and a Zoom recording device.
The audio was processed in Ableton Live and I tried both a simple audio compression and equalizing to make it more suitable for later use as well as a more heavy audio processing experiment in order to give a texture like quality to the water sound.
Video was manipulated in Processing and the code used is an adapted version of the code found on this link (p5art). This preliminary test yielded a result close to the aesthetic I want to achieve. I will try different approaches for achieving a similar result and possibly recreate it in Jitter.
