_butterflies (Lorenz Attractor sonification)

February 1, 2017

A sonification of the Lorenz Attractor, a chaotic system made up of 3 differential equations. Programmed in Max/MSP + Jitter, the system derives melodic content from the x, y and z values of 2 simultaneously running Lorenz systems, as well as the distance between them, illustrating the butterfly effect.
