I recorded several sets of chimes at a country store. I divided the recording into 5 files. I then reversed each of the 5 files, giving me 10. I play 3 sounds, randomly selected at a time, and switch out the sound files periodically. the size of the shape represents the gain. Each sound file's shape has the same color as its backwards counterpart. this runs indefinitely and is random each time. the piece is dedicated to my sister Joyce who has been influenced by mandalas and often uses geometric shapes in her paintings.
It is a simulation that shows how from a simple system of rules, structure can emerge from chaos. I have created this implementation in Processing. I have included a number of parameters that can be set to control the simulation. I plan to work on other visualizations.
pressing 1-9 will add that number of images to collage. the position is determined by a combination mouse position and randomness. the size and opacity is random. " "e" and "r" decreases and increases average size of new images. q" and "w" decreases and increases average opacity for new images. "c" toggles b/w. "b" blurs. "x" posterizes. "m", "n" and "v" filter. "a", "s", "d", "f","g","h","j","k" and "l" change manner in which images blend. "t", "y", "u" and "i" change the image set. "0" resets. clicking mouse will grab a snippet of the collage - click again to place it
