Harmony, in music, occurs when two or more notes are heard simultaneously, just like a chord. As a pianist, I know which notes will create a particular chord. However, this is harder to do when it comes to singing. The human voice, in most cases, sings one note at a time. What the voice box does when this note is sounded cannot be seen. In order to help people, including myself, better understand vocal harmony, I will create a series of moving images to visualize the measurement of sound. These animations will be housed in a prototyped, voice activated game.
