      Performance at Manchester Camerata's UpClose IV, Tuesday 23 April 2013, The Deaf Institute, Manchester, UK - http://www.manchestercamerata.co.uk/whats-on/concerts/upclose-iv Music: Stravinsky's 3 pieces for solo clarinet performed by Fiona Cross of Manchester Camerata Visuals: Real-time, audio-responsive adaptations of John Whitney Sr.'s "Rose of Grandii" algorithm coded in openFrameworks by Lewis Sykes and Ben Lycett John Whitney Sr. is considered by many to be the godfather of modern motion graphics. Beginning in the 1960s, he created a series of remarkable films of abstract animation that used computers to create a harmony - not of colour, space, or musical intervals, but of motion. Based on the trigonometry of Euclidian geometry, Whitney used simple mathematical equations to form elementary animated figures which he argued could be viewed as a visual parallel to the sonic harmonic series. Inspired by Whitney’s legacy, Lewis Sykes and Ben Lycett have created a real-time visualisation to accompany Igor Stravinsky’s colourful and witty 3 pieces for solo clarinet, by adapting his geometric algorithm, ‘The Roses of Grandii’, to create dynamic, alternately diverging and converging, flower-like patterns, more or less equivalent to the harmonies within the music itself.
