Created by Daniel Feles, refreq is a customisable music player. You can load music files into refreq, but also images (bitmaps, imgs, pngs). When you load a song, first the program analyzes the track, then it draws its frequency spectrum. After tracking, you can generate the spectral image / bitmap back into music. Likewise, if you load an image, according to pixel value to application scans the image based on the line you can position anywhere on the screen. Simultaneously you can move the line while the content is being played producing some quite interesting variations.
I was listening to music, when I fell asleep. When the track was over, I woke up and just realized, this music would be really cool for a documentation video, but we have to rotate it 90 degree. At this point, it’s getting really interesting. After you have the image of the track, how you want to play it depends on you, You can play with the timeline, to play the sound from another aspect.
Daniel is also looking for collaborators for this opensource project, to bring windows and linux versions of the software. You can download the source here and get in touch with Daniel via his site.
