magic eye is a Max for Live audio effect device for video-controlled granular synthesis. The brightness of the selected pixel in the 256x256 viewfinder controls where the next audio grain comes from: darker pixels create grains from earlier in the source audio file, and brighter pixels create grains from later.
As an audiovisual device, magic eye creates a tacit feedback loop between the user, the video, and the sound. The image reveals pathways for sonic improvisation which can be paused, reversed, and modulated in myriad ways.
Also included are 33 short, abstract video loops created by Joel Dunn AKA Marshall Applewhite / Junted / Cocky Balboa, so you can get started making weird sounds immediately.
