Microsonic Landscapes are spatial data explorations of several albums and musical works we loved around 2012. It was one of our first projects that escaped the boundaries of two dimensional computer screens. A Java (Processing) code was written to parse audio data and place it into a radial 3D space. One code was written per album and never used again. The three dimensional output data was then modelled and printed using a Makerbot's Replicator.

The sculptures followed a radial order. The first song or track was placed on the center ring. From that point, the piece starts to grow from its center until the final song is rendered on the outer ring.
