Simran Gleason is the creator of Kepler's Orrery



Kepler's Orrery is a generative music system that uses gravity equations to "compose" and play music. Start with planets (or stars or particles) that each have mass, position, and velocity, then run a n-body gravity simulator to make them move. They attract each other, accelerate, swirl around, and...
Kepler's Orrery is an applet that creates generative music based on a gravity simulator. Rocks, bodies, and mutators create a unique blend of sound for each arrangement of bodies it starts with. In this mini-talk, creator Simran Gleason shows how it works
