The animations are arranged on the radio dial in the order of their file size (from top to bottom), and their CPU overhead (from left to right).
The pieces range from simple evolving and random noise patterns, to self generating poetry based on the work of the Italian and Russian Futurists, such as F.T. Marinetti , Mayakovsky and Khlebnikov, based around the theme of "radio" (Cf. Telegraphic Language). They are based on scripts, which generate random, evolving and permutational sequences and structures, and have no determined duration. In most cases I would think of them as musical compositions with visuals, rather than animations with sound. However, this is not to say that the sound is more important than the graphics. I like to think of ether-1 as an online album of experimental music.
This is an ongoing project, some pieces will be modified over time, some will disappear, and others will take their place. Ether-2 is planned to consist of contributions from other artists (a kind of compilation album). And Ether-3 will perhaps be a "remix? project where different artists tweak, recode and otherwise mess with the work of other artists.
