a final project for music 256a, fall 2019
pulse is a short game/interactive essay/audiovisual experience about moving through crowds, feeling isolated, and finding kindred spirits. it is an experiment in minimalism and the ability for humans to empathize with the abstract.
as you find your people, layers of soothing music will begin to play.
here's a demo:
windows || mac || linux
download the appropriate file for your operating system, unzip, and run the pulse executable to play
pulse is coded using chuck and unity, integrated with the chunity
plugin. you can download the unity project folder, open it in unity, and do
whatever you want:
unity project folder
use the arrow keys to move
press spacebar to pulse
move through crowds and different situations
find your friends with a pulse
