Rorschach Rhythm, Score for Terry Riley, using Fibinuci sequences to structure an audio video performance. 2014. Runtime 5:12 minutes. John Toth.

The performance at the Burchfiled Penney Art Center uses Max MSP software to transform both the video and audio playback in real time using mathematical measurements of atmosphere, time and other natural phenomena. Three HD video projections are transformed and manipulated using Max MSP software that alters the video color, frame-rate, and contrast based on changes in the temperature, wind speed and barometric pressure.
