Algorithmic Compositions from Calabi-Yau Manifolds

Below is a selection of some pieces obtained from the bi-cubic Calabi-Yau manifold (defined as the zero locus of a polynomial of bi-degree (3,3) in CP2 x CP2). The pieces are based on a module map which converts the defining monomials of the manifold into local compositions, combined with random, variational choices to construct global compositions. Beware it’s not easy listening...
