Flinth - a flocking synthesizer for the iphone


Flinth is a flocking synthesizer for the iPhone. While most synthesizers use oscillators as their core sound engine, Flinth builds its glitchy sounds using the interactions emerging inside a little, simple ecosystem, where a group of pinkish “cells” swarm mimicing a biological behavior; these cells care about each other, react to gravity (making use of the iPhone’s accelerometers), and interact in different ways with user’s touch.
The result is a generative noise toy, capable of creating controllable sound textures with the taste of chiptunes and bent electronics.
