Realitat is a research and experimental studio founded by Juan Manuel de J. Escalante in Mexico City. Their recent creation "Microsonic Landscapes" visualizes music with physical form as a representation of an algorithmic exploration of the music.

Realitat selected some of their favorite albums, including Nick Drake's Pink Moon and Portishead's Third, and converted them into 3D objects. Each album's soundwave were 3D printed in a cylindrical form layer by layer on a Makerbot 3D printer.

The teams explains, the creation "proposes a new spatial and unique journey by transforming sound into matter/space: the hidden into something visible."

Video below is the trailer for Juan's upcoming generative art workshop at the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts. Buy your ticket here.
