Different methods of composition will aid in producing different results from an artist. Oftentimes, composers will have a thought along the lines of, “having an “image” in mind” and they will not know how to put it into existence. This project will be creating two Max for Live devices where creators can draw images, use a palette of colors, and have different widths for paintbrushes that will affect a composition. The images produced on this device will translate into midi or audio signals as designated by the user. This device will act as a different tool for composition, songwriting, and production, and it will also function as a method of creating visual music.
