A collection of TouchDesigner made inspiration, merging both visuals and sound (audiovisual). Eg: Lights responding to live music nearby or visual representations of instruments. Each creator/artist is credited along with each project.

What is TouchDesigner?
I find the combination of visuals and sound the most interesting because it gives the viewer/audience a much deeper and more immersive experience than one without sound. However, even if this is the type of projects this article will feature, it’s worth noting that there are many other types of works that can be created with TouchDesigner that don’t involve audio.
Audiovisual TouchDesigner Inspiration
Before showing individual works, here’s a list of some of my favorite Instagram accounts that regularly curate content containing TouchDesigner works:
Instagram – Audiovisual accounts
- #touchdesign (tag page)
- @ frog_spit_simulation
This first piece is by (@frog_spit_simulation) who combines lights/visuals with her synth, creating a beautiful performance. You can find more of her work on her Instagram page, with different types of visuals.
Einder – A Liveshow Installation
The beautiful audiovisual installation is called “EINDER” and was created using TouchDesigner.
The creators are
- @boris-acket (concept & creative direction)
- @lumusintruments (technological concepting & creative direction)
- @toon.rooijmans (art direction)
- Chris Vos (software).
Contrarium – Lofi Amsterdam
From one of the creators of the EINDER installation shown above (@lumusinstruments), here’s another gorgeous audiovisual installation in Amsterdam, Netherlands at Lofi Amsterdam (@lofi.amsterdam), called Contrarium.
For Contrarium, they used TouchDesigner to generate a light show using strings of long lights inside an industrial building, reactive to the live performance. I’d personally love to experience something like this in real life!
Hope you enjoyed it and found some new inspiration!
