Geometric Jazz

When we first started brainstorming ideas in groups about our NYJC branding my personal initial thoughts lead to me thinking of procedurally generated geometric patterns of some sort, these ideas of fragmented shapes forming other things appealed to me as it seemed to have a lot in common with the ideas of jazz, and we all wanted to stay away from any clichéd symbols such as saxophones.

I did some research on generative, procedural, fractal art and all that jazz (excuse the pun) and found a very interesting project called Advanced Beauty which procedurally generates geometric based art by reacting to audio stimuli, i really liked the look of the interacting shapes and also the shading of them as it is I think in some way 3d rendered gives it a nice look and is something I think I may try and imitate in my work.
