Real-time Reaction-Diffusion Music Visuals

While looking for info on on something much different, I found this rad music visualization by motion graphics artist Nobutaka Kitahara on Vimeo. (Nobutaka, if you’re out there, have no idea if you typically call yourself a “motion graphics artist”, but you certainly are.)

I’ve no idea how much work went into this but I’m fascinated with the concept and beauty of reaction diffusion. Take simple recursion, feedback loops, and you get profoundly complex naturalistic patterns… totally fascinating. This was made using software called TouchDesigner which is often used for immersive art installations, live projection mapping, and seems quite remarkable.

Music: artist: Sk’p – song: “Astravel”

The original video appears to have since been deleted, but can still be found some places, such as this Facebook post.
