This is an audio-visual composition entirely programmed in Max7 with Jitter and OpenGL. Manipulating the jit.bfg in time to generate a matrix that is post processed by various effects such as brightness and contrast. This matrix is used as amplitude values for an FFT. The input for the FFT is noise combined with a ring-modulated subtractive synthesis of a saw and frequencyshifted rectangle wave.
