Now we’re getting somewhere! This animation features a Julia set generated by Chaoscope, running at 30 frames per second. The parameters for the frames were calculated by Ani4chaoscope, and I edited the whole shebang with Serif Movieplus x3. The music is “An Ending (Ascent)”, by Brian Eno, off of his Apollo Atmospheres and Soundtracks album.
off of his Before and After Science album:
A perfect song that creates an indescribably peaceful mood of languid pleasure. The fretless bass and synthesizer play a call-and-response with the melody. This is from 1977. I was a sophomore in high school, and Roxy Music was my favorite rock group. (Which helped cement my somewhat outsider status; everybody else was into Styx, Boston, Heart, et al.) I found this lp in a hi-fi store, and listened to it obsessively for months. Energy Fools the Magician was later included in the Ramones film soundtrack, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School. When I think that this track is more than 30 years old, I get a funny feeling. When I was in high school, 30-year-old music was swing band stuff from the 40’s. Now 30-year-old music is just more rock music, albeit usually better than what’s out there today. (Here’s some trivia regarding this album: the song, King’s Lead Hat, is an anagram of the group Eno was about to become intimately involved with: Talking Heads.)
