Originally a four track EP made with Pure-data and GridFlow in 2010, released on GOSUB10 netlabel: blog post / archive.
The software part took the form of a Mandelbrot set explorer, with a “periodoscope” to analyse attractors, and sonify them with 4 audio presets.
Generative artwork rebooted in 2023.

zzc/ subfolder is the Pure-data version,
which may be hard to get working as GridFlow is no longer maintained.
src/ subfolder is a reboot in C99,
taking an analytical approach:
using a list of internal angles to define structure and \(c\),
instead of browsing \(c\) and figuring the structure out later.
Comes with two shell scripts: one that orchestrates an internet radio station, and one that orchestrates an audio-visual gallery installation. License AGPL-v3-only.

# 4 Radio
Streaming from an rpi3b+.
Experimental web-based player with client-side graphics generation: mathr.co.uk/zzc
# 5 Graphics
In the C99 reboot, instead of showing the Mandelbrot set, a zoomed view of the Julia set for the \(c\) value is drawn. Graphics are disabled by default because the computation is quite heavy at high quality.
