Visualizing music

I’ve been experimenting a bit with a way to add some visualization to live audio streaming on the iPhone. Here’s a very rough demo showing bouncing bars representing the left and right channel levels of the audio. It’s not much, but I think I might be able expand on it to have more advanced visual animations that are influenced by the music as it plays.

I’m not sure how much of a demand there would be for such a feature on the iPhone, but depending on how the experimenting turns out, I may include it in the next release of Tunemark Radio. Give that it will have some affect on battery life, it will definitely be an optional feature that can be toggled on or off.
