MetaMix (2002), software art

for Mac OS X, Windows 2000, or Windows XP

[note that this software is no longer supported and will likely not work on current systems]


MetaMix is a cross between a musical composition, a digital audio player, an interactive experience, a software tool, and a work of conceptual art. Feed MetaMix your favorite audio track and listen as familiar music is transformed into a new listening experience. MetaMix superimposes new musical structures onto existing music by turning special mathematical integer sequences into new musical forms. These musical forms are used to "remix" the audio track you choose.
