        アーティストの小島健治は映像データから音楽を取り出します。 彼は見ることと聞くことの情報は、重なっていると考えています。 このプロジェクトは、大恐慌時代の 3 枚の写真(パブリック ドメイン)のビジュアル・データを音楽解釈し、短いビデオにしてひとつに編集したものです。 小島はコンピュータ アルゴリズムが人間の感性を再現できるかどうかの、実験的なアート アプリケーションを開発しました。 人類の歴史のすべてのメディアは現在、バイナリ (0,1) としてデジタル データに変換され記録されています。 それは同じデータを、異なる形式として出力できます。 デジタルアートの未来では、同じデータを変換する機能が重要になります。 カリフォルニア大学の最近の研究によると、私たちの脳はバラバラに変化する視覚情報をタイムラインにまとめることで、環境に対する安定した認識を生み出すことが示されました。彼がプログラムしたアルゴリズムは、タイムライン上の色のばらばらなグリッド データを 2 進数でランダムに収集し、それらを音符に変換して MIDI ピアノを演奏します。

            Artist Kenji Kojima creates music from visual data. He believes that seeing and hearing overlap information. The project compiled short videos and musical interpretations of the visual data from three photographs. The photographs were shot around the Great Depression and they are public domain. This video is licensed under Creative Commons Attribution 4.0.
            Kojima developed the experimental art application on whether computer algorithms can reproduce human sensibility. We can use the same data as different outputs. In the future of digital art, being able to convert the same data into other forms is an important concept. This is not science. This is experimental art.
            All media in human history are now reduced and recorded in digital data as binary (0,1). The binary is the lowest level of machine code that the computer can execute. Art material binary creates media cross sensibilities possible. A recent study at the University of California found that our brain creates a stable perception of the environment by combining disjointed, changing visual information on a timeline. The algorithm he programmed collected disjointed grid data of colors on a timeline randomly by binary and converted them to musical notes and played midi piano.

Hide: Kenji Kojima's Biography
            Kenji Kojima is a digital artist. He has been experimenting with the relationships between perception and cognition, technology, music, and visual art since the early 1990s. Primarily he has interested in the relationship between seeing and hearing. He was born in Japan and moved to New York in 1980. He painted egg tempera paintings that were medieval art materials and techniques for the first 10 years in New York City. His paintings were collected by Citibank, Hess Oil, and others. The personal computer improved rapidly during the 1980s. He felt more comfortable with computer art than paintings. He switched His artwork to digital in the early 1990s. His early digital works were archived in the New Museum - Rhizome, New York. He developed the computer software "RGB MusicLab" in 2007 and created an interdisciplinary work exploring the relationship between images and music. He programmed the software “Luce” for the “Techno Synesthesia” project in 2014. His digital art series was exhibited in New York, at media art festivals worldwide, including Europe, Brazil, and Asia, and the online exhibitions by ACM SIGGRAPH and FILE, etc. Anti-nuclear artwork “Composition FUKUSHIMA 2011” was collected in CTF Collective Trauma Film Collections / ArtvideoKoeln in 2015. He started the new series "The Musical Interpretation of Paintings and Photographs" which creates music from image data in 2021. LiveCode programmer. https://kenjikojima.com/
