Jon-Kyle Mohr visualizes the musical spectrum of a song in this mesmerizing video. As the song plays, frequencies bubble up in the 6-o-clock position, and the trace remains as the circle rotates.

  • So cool! I want to this this released as software so I can run any song through it, export the graphics and make t-shirts!!

    • Shirts? I’d process my whole library and turn the end result images into album artwork in iTunes.
      Scrolling through this vid in both directions is highly rewarding.

    • I know that I have already seen spectrogram T-shirts for songs (I did a crude search and came up empty) but not in a polar plot like this. Standard spectrograms are usually on a good ole classic 2D X-Y plot. It’s a lot cooler if you put the amplitude on a color scale….
