In the efforts to make the multimedia set a bit more automated, we at the project have been developing a generative visual system.

One part of the system rests in Aseem's Ableton live set as a MaxForLive utility and transmits important control information such as song tempo, scene name, beats and bars, as well as audio information (normalized to floating points) for different instruments and groups.

This information is received and parsed by a different computer (receiving the information over an ad/hoc wi-fi connection between the devices), and used to control different parameters of the visual system.
