  • Autonomous Virtual Instruments is a real-time generative music and animation artwork that explores what is essential to music and how people make it. In a virtual world with simulated physics, simple gong-like instruments play themselves. They listen to their neighbors and respond with adjustments to their own timing and timbres. What kind of behavior results in sounds that are complex, yet structured?
