RGB MusicLab is probably the most strange – or should I say original – music software tool you've ever seen.

Instead of letting you compose music by using your computer keyboard as a music keyboard or writing notes right on the tablature, like you may have seen in other music composition apps, RGB MusicLab creates music automatically from any image you load on the program.

Yes, that's what you read: music out of images. RGB MusicLabs reads any photo you load on it, turns it into a mosaic and creates the music all by itself based on the color, brightness, saturation and other elements from the picture. Being an automatic composition there's not much you can do to change it (and sometimes you do feel like changing it because it sounds really bad). Luckily there are some settings you can tweak, such as the number of tiles in the mosaic, the length of notes and the kind of instrument, which can help you improve your musical piece of art.

RGB MusicLab provides you with a whole new way to create music, where you don't have that much control over the creating process but which proves to be really original.

Changes

  • Bug fixed: "Reset Point > Start Point 120,120,120" of 3D pallet did not work.
  • Bug fixed: "Import mosaic of Original Shape" of 3D pallet did not work

RGB MusicLab converts RGB (Red, Green and Blue) value of an image to chromatic scale sounds. *Also MIDI file which is created by RGB MusicLab can be converted to the original image. The program reads RGB value of pixels from the top left to the bottom right of an image. One pixel makes a harmony of three note of RGB value, and the length of note is determined by brightness of the pixel. RGB value 120 or 121 is the center C, and RGB value 122 or 123 is added a half steps of the scale that is C#. Pure black that is R=0, G=0, B=0 is no sounds.

It is not an impression of paintings or photographs of a composer. It reads a score from an image data directly. The result of music is one of art forms, however I am aiming to develop another art forms based on these studies and the concept.

You can experiment with aural interpretations from Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci to your personal digital photos and drawings. You may use the music for anything you like, such as for your viedo, your blog, your performance and your everyday life.
