There are many ways to generate pattern in design from dropping bags filed with paint onto a canvas, or as Pollack did, suspending dripping tins of paint and swinging them or splattering with a brush onto the surface. Australian digital artist Pierre Poske has developed computer software that translates different frequencies in voice modulation into patterns.

In the image above, he has used a simple spiral element found in Japanese patterns. The software he has created translates relative amounts of different frequencies into a layout of different sizes resulting in a variety of patterns. The technique is applicable to mediums such as textiles and graphic design.

Proske sees his research as a modern take on old technologies.

I’m kind of inspired by the connection of textiles and computers because they have a historical link that goes back to the automation of the loom in the 1800s.
