ColStr 3.0, visualization of sample words

Results of a sound visualization tool I'm working on that displays sound as color.


The source sounds come from a learn-english website, This sound sample has turned out to be a useful benchmark for testing, and it happens to show off the algorithm nicely too. You can hear the original sounds here:


The upper portion of each word is the high hissy sounds (approximately the "whispering range") converted to color. The bottom portion is the human vocal range. Since the original sound is just one guy speaking in relative monotone, the bottom portion is comparatively uniform.


I'm still looking for interesting sound samples for testing and demonstration. Please send them my way, if you have any.
