i am repeating our messages so that others may follow along:
we are looking for an individual interested in helping us in a project...
the project involves fractals and music... and will need someone who can write java
if you know of someone, we would appreciate your help
can you tell me more about what you want to do?
right now, we are actually writing an applet/standalone app which will allow users to take any data (including data from some h.s. educ. experiments on heartbeat fluctuations and DNA sequences) and converts into MIDI (which can be played via the web). the applet should be done in a couple weeks.
i checked out your web site.
unfortunately, i still don't have any idea what it is you're trying to do.
perhaps a general overview on the site would be helpful? also maybe one at membrane.com ?
from the webpage featuring acoustic experiments with the chaos theory, we are going to turn the theme song into a multimedia production. see: http://membrane.com/chaos.html
part of the vision includes fractal generation
to the beat and tone of the music.
(kinda like: the pulsing psychedelic backgrounds of the late sixties)
ideally we could deliver the sound in the form of a wav file and use java to generate the fractals. we would be excellent if the combined piece could be saved as an avi or mpeg
since we are fractal and java idiots, we could use some of your help
where we do have strength is in music... as far as traditional music goes, you can check out http://rombox.com/
however, are real strength is in experimental music - the philadelphia spirit experiment (http://membrane.com/music.html)
the music in generated in a chaotic fashion... lyrics and tones are produced spontaneously in various non-traditional recording environments... with some rather interesting results
in a nutshell: instead of just "random" noise, there is often an eerie sort-of order. we have been studying possible causes, such as, environment, memory and meta-physical influences.
but how does one go from here? and how does one help "the common man" get a grasp of where we're at? what better way than a picture or pictures? thus the idea of putting fractals together with the sound... and of course, the whole project will likely generate more data for our research
2) the bigger picture - our research:
the membrane domain is a no-income cooperative
our overall goal is to help mankind
as it turns out the website, http://membrane.com/ , has evolved into experiments in chaotic systems that have had little attention... like business models, website growth and social groups created through the internet
we are supported through volunteers from all walks of life (see http://membrane.com /video/roster.html for a sampling)
the acoustical chaos experiments currently include 3 physicists, a programer, 2 engineers, a carpenter, a lawyer, a banker, a vagabond, and a philosopher
we'd love to add you, too
are you interested?
