Code + Chords is an open source, real-time music visualization software. Led by a group of undergraduate students with backgrounds in computer science, engineering, and music, we have developed an open source coding library for creating real-time visual displays based on vocal inputs.
Code + Chord’s real time visual displays are based on multiple vocal inputs or MIDI piano keyboard input using Java, the Processing language, and PortAudio API. Using the Processing library, a sketchbook software for graphic design, powerful visuals can be made. This in conjunction with audio taken in from a microphone or MIDI piano keyboard can create visuals for music visualization that is capable of adding more depth to music.
