This is a ten-minute capture of my generative animation Dancing Wu Wei. The music is also mine (and also generative) and is entitled Beneath the Surface.
Taken together the two are meant to form an audio-visual experience of contemplation and/or meditation. Wu Wei is a Toaist concept that describes 'effortless doing'. The sense of movement in the work is informed by my personal experience of Tai Chi, Chi Gong, and meditation.
Both the graphics and the music are generated by intentionally using a minimal amount of code, so that the ‘effortless doing’ is reflected in the composing, as well as in its outcome.
I later created an iPhone version of the work, which can be found here:
