As part of DEAFBEEF's initial series of projects, Glitchbox is an exemplary showcase of interactive on-chain audiovisual systems. Each Glitchbox can be curated through a unique DAW interface, allowing owners to fine-tune every variable to their liking. Owners can also delegate editorial powers to any wallet, bringing in outside curators to generate the best outputs. While most NFTs store associated media and metadata on IPFS, DEAFBEEF stores the entire code and parameters on-chain as raw numerical data. Through DEAFBEEF's pure use of C language, the potential programmable dependency of the script is limited. The encoded data stores the original C language script, helping preserve the artwork's longevity for decades to come.
DEAFBEEF: Generative On-Chain Multimedia Art
The code and parameters to generate and reconstruct these multimedia files is stored on the Ethereum blockchain.
Series 4 - Glitchbox - Token 195
User programmable generative glitch music box. 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.
