Bomb is a software system that produces visual music. It creates a video stream that is fluid, textured, rythmic, animated, and generally non-representational. It uses techniques of non-linear iterated systems, like video feedback, but implemented on an ordinary PC. It produces animated organic graphics in response to the keyboard, audio music, or on its own.
Bomb has about eighty color palettes built into it. Bomb never uses "palette cycling", instead every pixel is recomputed every frame (at about 30 frames per second). The palettes were algorithmically derived from photographs of natural scenery and famous 19th and 20th century paintings.
Bomb is a living visual feedback system, one that never repeats itself, that always does something new. One that makes you stare. You relax to the color & motion on the CRT. Shapes appear, then a face, then a word, then something too distorted and obscured to recognize. As you try to read and understand, you can imagine anything; you see what you expect in the noise.
