A Diary of Whispered Truths
A downloadable art tool for Windows and macOS
A Diary of Whispered Truths is an idiosyncractic drawing tool/musical instrument, inspired by Andi McClure and Michael Brough's BECOME A GREAT ARTIST IN JUST 10 SECONDS. It incorporates multiple visual effects and drawing tools with a complex chain of synthesizers and audio effects to create something strange and unique.
In addition to realtime control via keyboard and mouse, Whispered Truths can also read commands from a text file, meaning it can be used to turn literature (or any kind of text) into abstract audiovisual art.
Exhibited at GameCity 2014 together with a custom controller (see below for some early footage of the controller).
To run the program, simply extract the contents of the zip file (Windows) or dmg file (OSX), and double-click the ADiaryOfWhisperedTruths executable. More detailed instructions are provided in the included readme.txt.
