Bird Flight Study

Two videos showing work in progress for an unfinished sound-driven, flocking piece – a continuation of my fleeting sound sculpture obsession.

I programmed the flocking using C4D’s COFFEE scripting language, following the rules set out by Craig Reynolds in his Boids AI model [insert geeky snort].

Unlikely to be revisited, the bird has *ahem* flown.
