Joy Assembly

Joy Assembly

This is a speculation on a music visualizer and an accompanying installation. The design is based on the Joy Division album cover for Unknown Pleasures, a seminal design by Peter Saville.

I always wanted to see the album cover animated and when I found a random preset in Form (a Trapcode plugin for After Effects) and tweaked it to react to a live audio source, I simply geeked out. There are no keyframes in the graphic, and although I used "She's Lost Control" as the soundtrack, any music or audio source will work.
