superflow – an audio-visual journey into the world of digital harmony


Superflow / An audio-visual Journey into the World of Digital Harmony / Bachelor Thesis

Length: 23:54 / Resolution: 1280×720 / FPS: 24

Superflow, the Bachelor Thesis I completed in July, 2010, takes you on an audio-visual journey into the world of Digital Harmony. Superflow is an algorithm I discovered on October 23rd, 2009, which changes the position of objects and their relationship to each other. Superflow can be initiliazed by rotating all objects after setting up a parent-child hierarchy with one pivot point. My thesis introduces the discovery of the Superflow algorithm, a newly created formula Polarflow (based on the Superformula by Johan Gielis and Bert Berinckx), and a newly designed mathematical framework Polarflow Fundamentals. Polarflow Fundamentals is the foundation and combination of these formulas, and can help us understand the long journey that the theorem of pythagoras has taken. In combination with the Superflow algorithm, possibilities have become endless. Superflow and the mathematical formulas have all been combined in a unique and custom developed particle software, Superflow System. Not only that, a new and maybe forgotten approach to visual art is proposed, Viusic. Inspired by the work of John and James Whitney to find harmony in visual art, I tried to continue their quest by introducing new perspectives to this exciting and forgotten field. What music is to sound is viusic to light. Harmony is not just audible, it is visible.

Viusic is the music of visual art.

How Music Works:

Why do some rhythms get our toes tapping, while others make us feel mellow? How does a love song bring tears to our eyes? What links African drumming to J S Bach?

In this new four-part series composer Howard Goodall strips music down to its essential parts to find out how music works.

We all respond to music – whether clicking our fingers, humming along or dancing – there’s something out there for everyone. In this series Goodall looks at melody, rhythm, harmony and bass to establi
