Paper Note – A Tangible Paper Waveform with Processing

Paper Note – A Tangible Paper Waveform with Processing

Andrew Spitz and Andrew Nip created this project entitled Paper Note. This project creates a tangible waveform from laser cut disks of paper where the user records a message, sound, etc and the system takes that information and analyses and maps it to each corresponding slice. The circles are laid on a sheet, lasercut and placed together with the end result representing the original sound wave.

“The team programmed it using Processing. Each Paper Note is made up of around 450 stacked disks of paper. The louder the volume at a specific moment, the bigger the disk. Their algorithm samples the right amount of information from the recording to scale the physical waveform to the size of around 14cm.” — Creative Applications
