Quasicrystal

Audioreactive concert visuals for Sacrifice & Bliss using GLSL in openFrameworks to generate visuals live.

The system was used at VJ London and tour dates supporting Arthur Brown in Morecambe and London by taking an audio signal from a mixing desk into a laptop and sending control signals via OSC from Duration to evolve the patterns over time in a controlled way.

The patterns are based upon Peter J Lu's research on the correlations between quasicrystals and girih tilework in the Middle East.
