Audio Automata with Otomata

I don’t normally like to blog links, Twitter and Google Reader are much better platforms for that, however this was so cool I just had to shout it out.

Read more about it, and check it out yourself: Otomato

The rules for the automation are simple, but the hypnotic patterns that emerge are truly beautiful and interesting. The user interface is both easy and fun to use, and it does a great job of showing the simple beauty of what you’re listening to.

The music reminds me a lot of one of my favorite bands Boards of Canada, so if like the sound of this then check them out, it makes for great programming music.
