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.
Kandid is a system to evolve graphics. Graphics, in Kandid, are not drawn by hand. Instead, new forms can be found using genetic algorithms. To achieve this aim Kandid simulates evolution using sexual reproduction and mutation. But there is no fitness function inside the program. Only the user can decide what images are interesting. Populations and genes can be stored in XML format. Image calculation is based on Lisp-like expressions, Lindenmayer Systems, Iterated Function Systems, Linear Cellular Automata, Voroni diagrams, and layered textures or isosurfaces rendered by the Persistence of Vision raytracer.
tkscript is a JIT-accelerated C-like scripting language with bindings for OpenGL, SDL, SDL_net, libpng, and zlib. A plugin SDK can be used to dynamically extend the script engine with custom C functions and C++ classes. It can be used to create portable, 3D, OpenGL-accelerated multimedia applications.
Pymprovisator is a program for jazz musicians. Jazz music is based on improvisation and this program is intended to help musicians to improvise. The user sets the song parameters and the program generates a MIDI file with an adequate accompaniment. It emulates the program Band in a Box from PG Music. You can think of it as the electronic version of the books/CD from Jamey Aebersold.
