Strange Attractor is a novel sound generator and effects processor for the iPad based on chaos theory. The outcome of PhD research, it uses a feedback system to process and generate sound. which can spontaneously oscillate, or respond to incoming sounds, processing them into fractal sonic textures.
Unlike conventional synthesis techniques, sounds emerge in surprising and unexpected ways, almost having a life of their own. It generates a wide range of undulating sounds, controlled by touch, which slowly evolve in unpredictable ways. The sound is visualised as an ever-changing dynamic form.
By moving your finger on the screen, you can navigate through a space of evolving sounds, that build-up, pulsate, and decay.
Sound input through the microphone or headphone socket can be processed into fractal textures, or will trigger and control oscillations.
