Let's say PI=3.14159265358979323846264
The name of this piece is I={..,PI,..} ("Pie in your eye")
It is algorithmically generated from a very terse little bit of C code.
Basically, the idea is this:
* You have a little virtual circular world of unit radius, which consists of all the
real numbers in the range [0.0, 2.0 * PI] inclusive.
* The world is populated by a maximum number of PI^PI of little travelers having
the following attributes:
- A lifecycle lasting anywhere from (PI)ms to (PI)s
- A triangular amplitude signature, depending upon the traveler's age,
in the range 0
- A current velocity, initially equivalent to that of a parent (the ancestor
traveller has fixed value), where velocity is limited to the range
[1/(PI^PI), 1/(SR/PI)]
- Periodic directional force vectors (ie: periodic bursts in opposite
directions), where the period is in samples and limited to the ranges
PI to PI^PI^PI (Remember, F = ma, and these travellers always weigh 1,
therefore F = a), and the acceleration is limited to the range
[Vel*0.00001, Vel*0.001]
Let the little buggers breed, and listen to the results.
