Leon's Cubes: QBeat

Sunday, May 6, 2012


At this point, you probably got that I love cubes. Another thing that makes me feel all fuzzy inside are synaesthetic experiences. When I had to choose what to tackle for this University project, things went naturally in this direction.

QBeat is a music video I created with Houdini. All the animation you see in the video is procedurally generated by the awesome audio track from BIT.TRIP RUNNER. The Houdini asset I built samples a few frequencies ranges from the music and use the resulting data to make cool things happen. Neat.

The entire project was a stab in the dark as I never used Houdini before and what was I jumping in wasn't exactly the simplest thing to start with. But in the end I am happy with the result.
