Collatz Conjecture (Oneness)



 Genre: Experimental

Get Flash to see this player.

except for the percussion (which is loops) this is made of additive synthesis of the hailstorm algorithm on the numbers from 1 to 99. each number is treated as 1 Hz.

Consider the following operation on an arbitrary positive integer:
If the number is even, divide it by two.
If the number is odd, triple it and add one.

Very cool idea
Perhaps this is new way to solve the conjecture once and for all. I will be waiting anxiously for your next piece: the twin prime conjecture!

Sounds like
A fun exercise, Its funny because its mostly just the synth and drums Takes off in some spots It sounds like it repeats a whole cycle then it does the cycle again but each time it grows more and more I wonder how it would sound without drums and maybe some ambient synth very weird journey, ON second thought the drums really add the glue and cohesion
