Abstract:This project studied factors in music which could produce visual patterns using a laser and speaker system. The system was built of common materials to test popular music. The patterns obtained were determined mostly by volume and drum and bass beats. Different notes produced unique patterns with amplitude variation between octaves. This technology could be used to allow the deaf to see and enjoy music.
