Nils Frahm playing a show in a Parisian Apartment for La Blogotheque series "Soirées de Poche"
"We showed him the piano; it was as if we were introducing someone to him to the first time. He lifted the lid, hit a couple of keys, smiled and murmured, “He’s got character”. Later: “He’s unpredictable. I like it”. He played a little more, and called out to us once more: “Hmm… there’s a slight chance that I might break it. I get excited sometimes.” We didn’t tell this to our hosts; instead, we crossed our fingers."

The major push behind this demo was to show off our new realtime fluid dynamics simulator: our novel implementation of 3D smoothed particle hydrodynamics, working on 250,000 particles or more (but up to 1 million) with collisions with arbitrary meshes, and turned to polygons using marching cubes, entirely in realtime. Made possible by a new, and fast, approach to SPH.
An exploration through a mysterious underwater world inspired by the forms and movement of sea life and micro organisms. Hybrid organic and synthetic creatures undulate and wander through heavy waters in concert with the cinematic soundtrack.
