Almost as soon as sound was introduced to film, people have been using animation to visualize what they heard. Here are two recent examples.
Unammed Soundculpture: A high tech approach using footage from a dancer recorded with depth cameras with music by Machinenfabriek. (4:56 minutes)
I Will Never Change: A more basic approach using actual vinyl records to visualize the sound waves created by dubstep producer Benga. (2:00 minutes)
