This is a three part collaboration series with Cano (@cryptocloudx). These clouds are generated with voxels, and my contributions are the compositions and colors. The textures in these are repeater patterns processed with sonification through Audacity - a very specific filter setting that generates these OP-ART looking patterns from black and whites. The simplicity of cano's clouds contrasted with the absurdly complex patterns and color palettes is meant to feel a little like staring over a landscape you can't really take in to the comfort of clouds. The series of three explores three different shapes, three different collections of the dizzying patterns composed together.

The recursion of the sonified textures on this is meant to stop just short of being nauseating. Is that a good idea? I find a lot of my favorite music and art is intense right up to the point of overwhelming you - because then you can't appreciate it and just see it as noise. Noise has its own attraction, I suppose, but detail is what rewards looking at something or listening to something over and over and over. The beauty here is that the clouds are a collection of pixels you can focus on when the swirling echo textures feel too much. When you're ready, you can dip back in and try to see all the little lines.
