Mxp (Mandelbrot explorer) is an X Window System application for computing and exploring Mandelbrot sets. Mxp supports zooming in and out, dynamic resizing of drawing windows, setup saving and loading, asynchronous image generation, GIF output, animation, nine color schemes, color rotation, color change options, and detailed statistics.
image_album generates HTML on-the-fly for the navigation of albums of related images. It supports several different viewing modes appropriate for different display sizes and connection speeds, and allows the viewing of additional image info such as EXIF data. It uses CGI PATH_INFO-style URLs (with no '?' characters) for spiderability by all search engines.
Autocomp is an accompaniment generator for Perl and Csound. It takes as input a text file containing chord changes, plus time signature and bpm information, and outputs a Csound .sco file containing a simple arrangement of those changes. A sample Csound .orc file containing a bass instrument, a selection of keyboard instruments, and a small sample-based drumkit is provided.
Gillo is a two-player game in a virtual reality environment. The players are cars moving inside a 3D smooth-box shaped playground trying to catch a ball and throw it through a goal. The goal is in the center of the field. The goalkeeper tries to catch the ball before it reaches the goal. In order to catch and fire the ball, players have an directed magnet with an invertible charge. To make things tricky, powerups are spread randomly throughout the playground to allow gravity rotation, ball inflation, and other funny effects.
Sound of Traffic is an application that converts TCP/IP header information into MIDI notes via the Java Synthesizer. Its purpose is to listen in on network traffic in ordered time via a tempo rather than in real-time, which could be more chaotic. In this sense it becomes closer to music then noise.
Pysco is a neat utility for CSound. It generates CSound note events and saves to a score file, with unlimited separate output time-streams ("tracks"), unlimited simultaneous different tempos (each track can have its own tempo, including independent accelerandos and ritards), unlimited named "chunks" of events, and many more functions to provid automatic time updating so that the user doesn't have to count beats all the time. It also selects ranges of musical chunks by beat value.
Network Auralization for Gnutella (N.A.G.) is an interactive software art tool that turns the process of searching for and downloading MP3 files into a chaotic musical collage. It searches for MP3 files that match keywords on the Gnutella network, and downloads and remixes them in real time based on the structure of the Gnutella network itself. It was commissioned by New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. and was made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
The PJ and Supreme4 components provide over 150 text effects for Macromedia Flash MX with customizability and unrestricted editing. Besides default font settings, many effects have predefined customization, and since all effects are Flash components, you can edit, modify, replace, or rescript any part of the effects simply by opening the effect Symbols in the Library.
