Dreams in High Fidelity

esheep_grab2If you’re not familiar with the Electric Sheep screen saver by Scott Draves I highly recommend that you check it out. His software renders beautiful sequences of animated fractal geometry. As a screen saver user, you can vote on your favorite animations, causing them to “live” longer and get added to a “gene pool” to “breed” with others using genetic algorithms. What does this have to do with sound? Well, it looks as though a musical performance is scheduled to premiere in Brooklyn, New York on September 3rd, 2009, that combines Scott’s amazing visuals with live musical accompaniment. Details about the performance can be found here:
