Ring Bent Gravity Party(cles)
Ring Bent Gravity Party(cles) is an audiovisual composition I realised using aleatoric music, generated by playing live a modified toy keyboard, in order to alter the visual element, a swarm of particles, generated through openGL within MaxMSP/Jitter. The visual element is then mapped in order to interact with the sound itself through a ring modulation which is sent back in the audio mix. The audio resulting from the ring modulation is fed back again into the visual element creating trails and other perturbating effects.
The basic idea is to combine two different elements, the sound and the visuals, to which I associated respectively an unpredictable and a deterministic behaviour, in order to create a third element, the audiovisual where the two are merged together interacting with each other in a non cause-effect fashion.
