"Density" is about a generative structuring of the sonic realm through constraints derived from the visual domain. This reverses the visual music mapping from musical pitch to color hue, a tradition dating from 18th century color organs that continues today in the iTunes visualizer. The custom software behind Density enables exploration not possible with commercial software, and embraces glitch effects and the ‘happy accidents’ that occur by joining diverse fields through conceptual motivation and chance procedures.
