We now know that math clearly depicts the harmony of the gods. Pythagoras called it Tetraktys. Since all images are pure magic - what else - let's do some using divine math. Pictures are the most ancient form of sorcery and most probably the only one that actually works besides all the esoteric nonsense that's floatin' around people's minds. Why that is, you will see.
Those who suffered hours and hours sitting on a chair in class, wondering what nonsense teachers and professors are mumbling about, know this kind of question: What's math good for? How does math affect my life? What sense does it make?
Who cares? But: Who said, math couldn't be beautiful?
So, what if someone took simple, mathematical expressions like sin(), cos, abs() or log() and put it on screen? No fractals - no random operators - no dynamic systems.

The neuronal aesthetics symposion was a smashing success. Above: A photo I took while I was holding my lecture. Time to document the audience for a change.

Next saturday, I'll be with the symposion for neuronal aesthetics at the ZKM Karlsruhe. My presentation will be about showing how artificial neuronal systems can create music. Also, I'll be jammin' with my computer. Rock on!
Computers, combined with artificial intelligence, CAN make music. You'll see.
