Kardionic is an interactive cinema piece that takes as it’s subject the human heart in it’s organic, energetic and spiritual dimensions. During the performance conputer generated 3d models of the heart, it’s structures and blood cells are animated and morphed in real time, alternating between naturalistic depictions and total abstraction.
How was MAX used?
The entire system for generating sound and animation was written in Max/MSP/Jitter. Two networked computers, one for sound and one for video, run the performance, with input from three musicians performing the soundtrack and manipulating the visuals.
