This article reports ongoing work on a user interface dedicated to generate sound from pictures and hand drawings. If we imagine what sound would correspond to a given image, on what parameters of the image do we focus and what would the result sound like? In this paper, we try to answer this question by giving a model transforming images into sound based on chosen parameters extracted from the image. For this, an input image is first binarized, then its skeleton is extracted and 'tracks' are identified and used to generate chirps in an additive synthesis approach.
