A New Beginning
Children of the Machine v2 has proven to be a very fruitful avenue of exploration. However, even though I’ve been able to work well within Max/MSP so far, I’m beginning to feel limited by its structure. I’ll detail below a bit more about this next step, which involves porting over to OpenFrameworks.
From the above, to the below.
The last version to be exported from Children of the Machine v2 was the Matrix Trilogy. Compared to the amalgamation of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Bladerunner, and Surrogates, the Matrix Trilogy’s composition was much more focused around the upper-middle quadrant (sextant?). The striking difference lead me to reevaluate (or reconfirm) the original purpose of this vein of exploration.
