Through programmable media, this series invites users to participate in the exploration and curation of a generative audiovisual model. Rather than enforcing artificial scarcity through a single fixed hash, owners/editors may instead continuously explore and selectively choose from a large set of possible outputs.
After minting, owners(and those granted editing access by the owner) may tweak parameters that influence the output of the model, and store those parameters on chain. Parameters are analogous to the knobs and switches of a modular synthesizer. Owners/editors may 'play' this instrument, selecting settings that please them.
A record of the parameters chosen, and who made them, will be recorded immutably on-chain.
The model is influenced by two sources:
1. A fixed random hash chosen at the time of minting.
2. Editable contract parameters that token owner/editors may change at any time.
Even with editable parameters, no two tokens can be exactly identical. The source of randomness is in part influenced by the fixed random hash that differs amongst all tokens.
Without changing ownership, the token owner may grant editing rights to another user. Previews of outputs can be made offchain with no gas cost, either through compiling on local machine or for convenience through deafbeef.com DAPP. After selection/curation, the parameters may be written to the smart contract. State will change over time, depending on preferences and curation of the token owners and those to which the owner has granted editing rights.
