My teacher was talking about a college professor she had that had a picture drawn out that was drawn using music. It was a playable piece but looked complicated. I'd like to see an example and can't find any online

  • Hi, welcome. You will find (in general, not just here) that providing an example of the picture and a detailed description of how the music produced the picture. For example, I know of "show off" cases where a complicated fourier transform dataset was converted back to sound and the resultant signal, written in spiral format, produced a picture. – Carl Witthoft Mar 4 '19 at 15:03

  • It sounds like you may be talking about some form of graphical notation. – ex nihilo Mar 4 '19 at 15:06
  • Would piano roll notation a la Synthesia count? Because that's where I've seen the majority of these pictures made out of music. – Dekkadeci Mar 4 '19 at 16:17

I'm not sure this is what you mean, but there is the piece „Ode an das Ruhrgebiet“ by Marc Vogler which is a playable piece, but the score sheet depicts the headframe of a coal mine in Essen, Germany. You can see an image on the composer's page. (Larger version).
