Flickr-generated music + image project

Just gave this a try. Very cool. I'd love to see an app that could do this for most any song. Just enter key words and timings and let it go:



I recently launched a project entitled "Astronaut," which is basically a visualization of my friend's song, with random Flickr photos dynamically appearing at set keyframes. The images I'm pulling in come from Flickr photos whose tags match the lyrics of the song.

Every viewing should be different, as the Flash piece pulls in a new set of images each time. I've seen a few breathtaking photo combinations; I've seen several humorous combinations as well, that end up subverting the song entirely. I think the neatest part of the project is its randomness and its fluctuation. This was a lot of fun to work on, and I hope you find it fun to watch.
