Synaesthetic Monk's Blues

Phantasmagoria, magic lantern shows, spectacles without substance. They achieved complete sensory experiences through noise, incense, lightening, water. There may be a time when we'll attend Weather Theaters to recall the sensation of rain.

The main thing a musician would like to do, is to give a picture to the listener of the many wonderful things he knows of and senses in the universe... I'm using the insides of sounds to move around in a very subtle way which, I think, ends up being inevitable. I feel it's the only solution to that particular problem that I presented myself.

What visions are these that appear? The Mandelbrot Set is etched pixel by pixel, on the screen. On its edges, strange colors play amid fantastic filigrees. Infinite detail plunges in fractal regress to infinitesimal reaches. A myriad of Julia sets, each a delicate doily born of a single point in the Mandelbrot set, parade across the screen. And now, strange creatures called biomorphs appear, with radiolarian spikes and innards like the ectoplasm of algebra.

How were these visions conjured up?
