Morendo indicates sound slowly dying away, an extreme fade. Below is an audio reactive VR exploration into preserving sounds and their memories.
Sounds are carriers of memories. 
Some memories fade, some linger. 
The Italian musical term Morendo indicates sound slowly dying away, an extreme fade.
I coded an audio reactive particle system that explores the struggles of preserving them. It uses the Fourier series to reconstruct sound waves and dictate the particle's movements. 
Volume and pitch also influences the camera zoom, colours, and particle formations.
This experience works in browser , on the Google Cardboard, as well as in VR  on the Oculus Rift. In browser, feel free to use your mouse to spin and orbit around the particles.

Demonstration of how it works with audio, and VR user testing
