I Am Free /// Mariah Carey (Vocal Visualization)

Part of making new things is combining your favorite old things. For this project, I wanted to combine the ideas of representing vocal riffs graphically (Riffctionary) and the animation software I was using the for the Joe Dart Visualizations (Music Animation Machine).

I didn’t just want to combine those ideas though. My real desire (much like in the Joe Dart and Back Pocket animations) was to expose more people to a style of music that I deeply cherished. I wanted to engage people in riffing with one of the songs that first engaged me: Mariah Carey’s I Am Free.

Follow the shapes of Mariah’s vocals, transcribed by me and generated by Stephen Malinowski’s Animation Machine, as they whiz by.
