DEAFBEEF: Generative On-Chain Multimedia Art

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

Series 5 - Advection - Token 220

An aesthetic study of fluid motion. A commentary on the relationship between nature, mathematics and generative art. Progammable media with shared utility for a community.

Both artists and scientists are drawn to the beauty found in nature. Generative art may take inspiration from the compact mathematical models describing complex physical phenomena. Not only do these models produce perceptually interesting outputs, but the mathematical descriptions themselves have an elegant aesthetic.

This work attempts to express the beauty and harmony found in the overlap of mathematical and physical concepts in different perceptual modalities. The fluid motion model for these animations is based on academic research conducted in 2010. The sounds of struck percussion are synthesized from physical models sharing common principles.

This series extends the user programmable media paradigm of Series 4. One token will be reserved for community access. This one token is not owned, but its utility is shared: community members may learn, study and interact with a programmable system, and in turn may change parameters that influence the audiovisual output. Parameter changes and their authors' addresses are stored on-chain.

The audiovisual outputs are reconstructed entirely from 100kb of self contained C code stored on-chain.

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.
