Andy Thomas is a digital artist that specializes in particle simulation based motion graphics. He receives his inspiration from nature and technology alike, combining the two to create stunning, digitally-organic visualizations.

Featured in the video below is one of Thomas’ pieces titled Bird Sounds Visualised. To create this, he captured sounds of birds using a digital audio recorder and then fed it through a processing sequence to animate the sound waves with particle effects. The stark differences of each bird’s recording is beautifully expressed with energetically morphing colors and textures, providing a life-like embodiment to accompany the voice of these birds and allowing us to see the sounds of life.
