To the right of this page follows a series of instruments which allow for—not the creation of musical compositions—but for the creation of graphic compositions. The interactions between each layer of each composition is determined by the sonic context and by your manipulations thereof. Each instrument represents a different effect. These effects constitute the everyday sonic experience.
Not all of the effects have associated compositions yet, (see a list in the index to the left of this page.) This is an ongoing project and I hope to eventually create an instrument for each term and more.
Make some noise to create a composition or just let the ambiance of your room determine the composition. Say some words and they will appear on the canvas. Change the typography with the following commands: "bold, italic, align-center/right/ top/bottom, extended, light, condensed," Save your creations with the print button and send them to me.

This is the first installment of an ongoing collaboration with peers, friends, artists and designers, wherein I accept submissions of compositions that are developed with the use of Graphic Resonance.
Each issue is based on a tool developed by me, which I describe as 'instruments'. These instruments allow for—not the creation of musical compositions—but for the creation of graphic compositions through sound. Each composition is related to a certain sonic effect of the everyday.
With this particular issue, I asked participants to generate a number of images across a period of time with the Metamorphosis tool from the ambience of their livingspace. The graphics and type illustrate a picture of their changing sonic environment, picking up sound information from their movements, activities, as well as their [audible] media consumption such as television, podcasts and music.
