OK folks, here’s another loud, noisy 3d-fractal animation for your fugacious entertainment. Unfortunately, I couldn’t think of anything amazingly cool and relevant to call this one, so thus the vagueness of the title. Anyhow, I hope that you’ll derive some visceral pleasure from viewing it and that you’ll now be able to find answers to all of your private, unspoken questions.
As usual, a significant portion of the sound effects were created using stuff from my kitchen. Here’s a peek at part of the process:
Prior to patching them into the video, the various audio samples are brought into Audacity and tweaked (sometimes excessively) with noise reduction, reverb, echoes, time-stretching, reversal and other filters that distort the sounds in weird and wonderful ways. There are some portions of the video where upwards of twelve different samples are layered over each other to create my interpretation of what real fractal motion sounds like (or at least something close enough). As you can imagine, it’s often quite difficult to envisage exactly what a certain fractal movement should sound like (let alone create that sound), but that’s where most of the fun in the process comes from. And of course, at the end of the day, who’s going say it’s wrong?
Anyhow, as noted previously, I hope you enjoy the video. Let me know what you think.
