"SandBox Typo - GeneTypo #001" is an experimental and generative typography created using physics, attractors, repellers, oscillators and particles.
It was created in the generative typographical project titled GeneTypo that consists of the arrangement, style and appearance of typefaces through different generative techniques, based on computational creativity and using creative coding. The main aim of the project was to explore different generative techniques and procedural approaches in order to produce experimental, transitional, and virtual typographies.
AAAC (An Autonomous Agents Choreo) is an abstract generative animation video created through code and user interaction in which a flock of autonomous agents governed by physical laws of attraction-repulsion is subjected to the will of a geometric choreography. Throughout the audiovisual piece the flock of autonomous agents is distributed against nature into different geometric patterns which vary the general perception of colour, shape, texture and rhythm.
The soundtrack of AAAC (An Autonomous Agents Choreo) is also a generative audio work created through code and user interaction in which the movement and bustle of the flock of autonomous agents generates its own musical score.
The physical features of the agents (velocity, acceleration and position in the space) and the forces generated by the vectorial field which shakes them are some of the parameters used in the audio synthesis. The generative instruments and sinusoidal waves used for the interpretation of the sound space, their frequencies and rhythms change according to the geometrical pattern adopted by the flock of agents.
The code that rules the behaviour of the flock of agents has been developed using Processing as the programming language. The code that rules the behaviour of the flock of agents and the agitator vectorial field sends messages through the OSC (Open Sound Control) protocol to a code developed using Chuck as the programming language for real-time sound synthesis and the music creation of the sound space.

"Desperta" (Wake Up) is an audioreactive abstract video-poem based on the poetry book "Poemes a Nai" written by the Majorcan poet Miquel Angel Riera. Its visuals and animation has been coded using Java + Processing + Minim, and it uses FFT audio analysis to animate the oscillation, volume, size and colors from a generative blanket. Its music was composed by the band "En Dejú" intentionally for an art exhibition titled "Reversos" (Re-verses) based on poems written by the poets M.A. Riera and Jaume Vidal Alcover. It took place in the "Torre de Ses Puntes" Museum (Manacor, Illes Balears) in 2016 October.
Poemes a Nai (X) - M.A. Riera:
"Ta'teix, Nai, restes
Com una son desperta
que em dorm la som
i et dorm a tu dins mi,
perquè així no em despertis."
