A minimal continuous audiovisual sculpture of sound and imagined black ink exploring Supercollider generative sound algorithms, by João Martinho Moura, in 2011. The author is grateful to Alberto de Campo, Julian Rohrhuber and James McCartney for the inspiration on the Super Collider research path. Major noise sounds were recorded in a custom-made software, developed in Super Collider and Processing, using an EEG interface, doing brain signal analytics, except the piano, which was recorded live. This work was included in the Blue-ray 2013 Ars Electronica Animation Festival and screened in several cities.
