Turn an Image into Music With RGB MusicLab – Windows and Mac

Published Wednesday, January 13, 2010 11:47 AM


Have you ever wondered what an image would sounds like of you played it? I know that sounds ridiculous right but it's a real thing and something you can do for free with a little application called RGB MusicLab for Windows and Mac.

RGB MusicLab converts the RGB, Red, Green, and Blue, values of every pixel of an image and plays a 3 note harmony based on the RGB values. It reads the pixels from top left to bottom right playing a song a long the way. I have to admit that most of the time it seems like set a child loose on a piano but it is sometimes pretty cool.

RGB MusicLab can even make music out of 3D objects and does the same thing except instead of the RGB values they use the XYZ coordinates to generate the 3 note harmony. For both images and 3d models there are all kinds of setting and instruments you can use to make your composition. I can't even begin to describe to you what they do, but know there are a lot of ways to change your composition.

There are some examples out there on the web like that at the software's website. I have my own composition and it is of my face. If my face were a song this is what it would sound like. http://twaud.io/0l0
