Hoping your holidays are filled with peace, joy, comfort and love.
Did you know that the first 9 notes of Beethoven’s beautiful Bagatelle No. 25 in A minor (WoO 59 and Bia 515) for solo piano, commonly known as “Für Elise“, were actually copyrighted in November, 2003? A Dutch trademark agency named ShieldMark won the exclusive rights to the first nine notes claiming it was a test case to determine “whether it was possible to register sounds as trademarks. The judgment in the Für Elise case of 27 November 2003 is clear on the subject and now constitutes applicable law in the entire European Union.”
Pretty weird, huh? If you’re interested you can read more about it here: http://www.furelise.com/
Hope you enjoy the dancing Julia Set fractal.
So here’s my first “Amazing Surface” video. I really enjoy this Mandelbulb3D formula, for obvious reasons – there are just so many weird shapes that magically appear out of nowhere.
For those that care, total rendering time was roughly three weeks 24/7 rendered at 1920×1080 with 2×2 antialiasing. Sound effects once again are courtesy of my kitchen utensils and silverware.
Here’s a nutty little fellow created with Mandelbulb3D v1.82 (Amazing Surface formula) and Photoshop.
I plan on doing a tutorial one of these days on how to create fractals with mixed textures. Yep, one of these days …
Here’s another “Amazing Surface” fractal. I named it “Mask” because it reminds me of the black Spiderman mask.
