Just for fun, I tried playing a full song on the 4×4 I set up last week.
As someone who played the piano for 11 years, it was pretty difficult to conceptualize the notes “wrapping” as they increased. I found myself remembering the “shape” of the sequence of notes, much more than the distance between them.
Many takes later…
For part 2 of this week’s assignment, I switched p5.js drawings with Azalea and added interface functionality to it.
Here is Azalea’s original sketch:
See the original code.
The design’s main variables are color and shape type, both of which are controlled by the mouse position through 6 different quadrants of the screen.
