Bret Battey - cMatrix10

Duration: 14'

Perhaps there is something deeper to be changed in one's life than merely shifting the dramas with which one self-identifies.

cMatrix10 presents a mass of flowing particles and traceries of sound, sometimes forming diffuse clouds, other times coalescing into flowing lines of arcing motion. But no state is stable; transformation is constant. Dramas are purely localized, transient. One observes these dramas as they arise. And as they fall away. We see them as they are: temporary manifestations of an underlying, unfolding process.

cMatrix10 is an algorithm that I developed with Processing—a Java-based programming environment. I applied post-processing in Adobe AfterEffects. The foundation of the audio is a spectrum-saturating synthesis process controlled by LISP algorithms driven by point-location data exported from Processing.
