In this work a performance-based intelligent system for visualization and signification is used to develop and expand the musical material played by the clarinet. The melodic line, as played by the clarinet, is used as the main compositional strategy for visualization and is based on calligraphic line drawing using artistic rendering: the computer-generated line is drawn in 3D space and rendered using expressive painterly and ink drawing style. The appearance of animated lines and textures portray a new artistic style that transforms a musical gesture onto a visual plane.
