Device Type: Instrument
Description: Lissajous is a real-time audio reactive graphics device built in Max/MSP and inspired by the work of Jules Antoine Lissajous.

Lissajous was first released as a standalone application in June 2015 and is now available as a MaxForLive device. With this update, Ableton Live users will be able to use Lissajous within their projects, and to midi map and control all of its parameters.

The media project is born with the purpose of investigating the relationship between sound and vision, chaos and order, closely related to astronomy, mathematics & physics. It explores the field of harmony and disorder and let the user dip into an elegant, dreamlike, minimalistic yet chaotic space which reflects the complex rules of the universe in all its abstract beauty.
The software shows sound oscillations as XY matrix functions and creates complex graphics curves. Lissajous graphically describes sound and allows observation of constantly varying signal voltage of two audio signals as function of time. Video generated by sound can be controlled in endless ways by giving to the user the possibility of a wholenew range of interactions.

Lissajous: A universe of shapes.

Looks cool, but... is the audio just coming from one of the free PeRColate objects and running into a basic jitter visualizer? Can you legally profit on someone else's free Max/MSP contrirbutions?
