PET_00 compositions are based on small particle systems. Each particle represents a section of a sample. The movement of the particles can be influenced by attractor elements which vary in strength over time, thus creating fluxating patterns of movement amongst the particles. The samples attached to the particles are activated when they pass through "trigger zones" which adopt the colours from the particles as they play. This creates and kind of simple animated visual structure which refelcts the generated sound structure.
Compositions can be stored in an online database. Users can play other peoples' composiitons or re-edit existing ones.
The project was commissioned by the Paragon Ensemble who use it to open their live performances presented on a projection behind their performers. It is available online at http://www.pet-projects.org.
