In August of 2022, I was approached by visual artist Chris Shier to host / network a visual tool he had made for UK-based musican George FitzGerald. The tool was created with THREE.js and TweakPane and had been used by Art Director David Rudnick to create the visuals (cover / promotional artwork, music video, etc) for the album Stellar Drifting. After seeing the trippy visuals and customizeable parameters, Domino Records wanted to create a micro-social media site that empowered users to create their own versions of the album's workwork.
To avoid server load issues that commonly occur with user image uploads, I opted to pass signed URLs from our server to the client, which allows them to directly upload images instead of passing it through the server.
Future development will include a custom GUI that the label can use to look at user submissions and download hi-res versions to use as visuals for live shows.
