  3. A fully generative composition that draws from Allister Crowely's "The Book of Law" and "The Book of Lies" for "Halloween on Spaceship Earth" party thrown by Robot Heart in New York City. Two seminal Occult books are 'read' to a partygoers.

    Thanks to Josh Goldberg for the invitation, Brian Chasalow and Alejandro Crawford for the other apps.

    For those interested : Syphon output from Quartz Composer is sent to a fully custom Jitter application written by Josh Goldberg that acts as a sequencer and multiplexer for multiple Syphon powered applications, allowing visualists to write custom generative pieces in a language / application agnostic manner to use the tools they want. The installation featured Unity3D, Jitter, Kinect, and Quartz Composer based software.

    Final mix is output to Mad Mapper and keystone corrected.
