Video Links

Here's a few links to interesting fractal videos. To me, they all seem to share a similar, glitchy, abrasive aesthetic - though as far as I know they have nothing technically in common.

'Gestalt', by Thorsten Fleisch

It's an 80MB download, but it's really quite stunning.

'Gantz Graf', music by Autechre, video by Alexander Rutterford. OK, so it's not exactly a fractal. So sue me ;-)

CLUT, by Joe Gilmore and Paul Emery:

Don't know how this is done. It looks at least partly procedural so I guess it's not totally off-topic.

I'd be interested in any other nifty videos anyone would like to post...

Jock Cooper has a gallery with quite a few interesting animations.

Pretty freaky stuff. Gestalt was certainly worth the download, I'll agree. Very surreal. The sound really works well with the film. Animation is adding a whole new dimension to digital artwork.

A couple of Jock's had some great fractal music accompaniment.

It's interesting how animation almost instictively becomes multi-media and a hybrid sort of artform. There's a real synergy from the combination of electronic sound and electronic art.

Looks like a lot of work too...

Hi Albert,
This last video "Clut"has been generated by VVVV:

vvvv is a toolkit for real time video synthesis. It is designed to facilitate the handling of large media environments with physical interfaces, real-time motion graphics, audio and video that can interact with many users simultaneously.

vvvv : a multipurpose toolkit

It is amazing software, with a large user community.

Thinks for the interesting video links.

Sanchtv hhas a neat one. VVVV (let's call it "4v") looks pretty cool. I guess it makes it possible to integrate the visual and audio in real time, rather than separately in tracks, the way I think it's been done traditionally.

Thomas' link was good too. Algorithmic imagery and electronic music are a pretty powerful combination, or maybe these examples are just the really good ones.

I get the feeling that fractal art and other algorithmic stuff might be a thousand times more popular in this animated/mixed-media form than as the traditional still image.

autechre happens to be one of my favourite artists btw :) interested parties should be sure to check our their "amber" and "incunabula" albums, which tend to be more accessible than the others. after that you might try "chiastic slide" and "cichlisuite" (sickly sweet) before getting a nosebleed on the others ;)

their music has given me a lot of inspiration when making fractals, as is the case tonight :)
