    Visualise audio as moving air particles


      I'd like a bird's eye view of two or three people talking to each other. I'd like to show how the sound travels from their mouths by displaying air molecules as a grid of dots that compress and rarefy as the sound travels through them. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how this might be achieved?

          First and foremost you will need to master the fine art of creating suitable property/ displacement maps, which, depending on how realistic you want things to be, could become complicated. A simple wave effect can easily be created using Radio Waves or the Ripple Displacement effect. Then you would have to apply your maps to the actual particles using Card Dance, Foam or third-party plug-ins like Trapcode Form...
