Cinnafilm Announces New Software to Create Music from Video Images

Published: April 1st 2024

ALBUQUERQUE, NM, April 1, 2024 – Cinnafilm Inc., of Albuquerque NM, today announced a revolutionary new feature for its PixelStrings media transformation products. Building upon Cinnafilm’s innovative image processing technology and the robust media processing capabilities of PixelStrings, the forthcoming overhaul introduces a groundbreaking feature: transforming the ever-changing color palettes and editing tempos of video sequences into rich, musical compositions.

Utilizing advanced algorithms, the AI-enhanced PixelStrings will analyze video content in real-time, extracting musical themes and synthesizing instrumental notes and vocal harmonies from the colors and shapes that dominate each frame. The tempo of the video editing – marked by cuts, fades, dissolves, and effects – will dictate the rhythm of the generated music, creating a synchronized audio-visual symphony. Particularly innovative is the method by which frame-rate cadences influence percussive elements, from energetic dance beats to slower trance moods.

“These AI advancements in PixelStrings will redefine multimedia experiences in unprecedented ways” says, Lance Maurer, Cinnafilm’s Founder and CEO, “It’s totally the cat’s pajamas, a real game-changer.”

Among other things, Maurer says he expects this reinvention of PixelStrings to be a pivotal force in the burgeoning “Gregorian K-Pop Grunge” genre, the hip underground music-style that marries ancient chants with modern pop sensibilities and grunge textures. Says Maurer, “That’s definitely a sweet spot.”

This AI-powered iteration of PixelStrings not only creates music from video content, it also introduces a spacetime listening continuum, allowing the synthesized music to not only be experienced in 2D (stereo) or 3D (immersive) environments, but also in 4D. “Engaging the 4D feature” Maurer added, “will free the listener from the usual temporal constraints of the conventional audiovisual experience. Future plans to integrate quantum computing algorithms will allow listeners to experience compositions anywhere in the multiverse.”

“Why did we do it?”, asks Maurer. “We just wanted to let our development team have some fun. After all, it’s April 1st.”
