DEAFBEEF: Generative On-Chain Multimedia Art

The code and parameters to generate and reconstruct these multimedia files is stored on the Ethereum blockchain.

Series 3 - Entropy - Token 148

Exploring themes of permanency, ownership through on-chain programmable media. A programmed process of degradation is repeatedly applied each time the token is transferred. Traded too many times, the output media will be indistinguishable from noise.

The process is artificial, in that no information is actually lost. The code model itself is stored publically and immutably on a decentralized network, and the output media can be reconstructed in any state by changing the input parameter. While it is the artist's instructions that the counter variable serve as input, an owner may choose differently.

Generative audiovisual art. Nothing but a C compiler. Pushing the limits of multimedia stored completely on-chain.

Series 0 - Synth Poems are short generative music pieces, inspired by the sound of analog synthesizers. They are stored on-chain

Each piece is generated at the time of minting from a random hash value, influencing musical elements including tempo, timbre, pitch and time signature. Simple rules lead to surprising variation, giving each piece it's own distinctive personality, while retaining a common theme.

Although synth poems are audio focused, a fitting visualization is added as an ode to early computer graphics that used vector displays to visualize analog signals. What you see is a direct representation of the sound signal, as it would appear on an oscilloscope.

The code that generates the audiovisual is stored completely on-chain, allowing a user to reconstruct the media without having to trust IPFS or external storage.
