CHAOS Visualization Winamp goes organic !

CHAOS Visualization Winamp goes organic ! The plug-in allows you to define an artificial cellular life form that will ooze into life with your favourite music or as a screen saver. Groovy Lava is based on chaos in which there are no well-defined mathematical formulas, only action and re-action, driven by a random process using the basic rules of life and death. At the heart of Groovy Lava is the chaos engine, which randomly selects a cell position and applies your life form rules. It is this random selection, along with the influence of the surrounding cells, that allows Groovy Lava to simulate many natural phenomena such as auroras, turbulent water flow, and fire. As the 'lava master', you can set the rules for the chaos engine, allowing it to create weird and wonderful images of beauty and chaos. It is also possible for the software to generate random life forms in time with your music, creating a unique trip into the world of cellular automation. There is no doubt that there are still many amazing life forms yet to be discovered, maybe you will be the first to discover a whole new way of life ?

Organic chaos

Very interesting visual plugin. Based on a system of chaos, these tend to have a flow and life of their own. Resembling rhythmic cellular life seen through a microscope. Many different configuration options available....very nice to set it up to randomly switch settings and sit back and watch.
