Here's an experiment i did last night
I made a spectral analysis using an FFT phase vocoder of some glitch music ('liccfli' by Autechre),
and wrote a little script to import it into blender IPO keys, and animated some array modifiers with it.
Very interesting effect
And it's completely automatic.
The video is at 50 frames per second and 20 seconds long, and rendered overnight. (1034 frames total)
rendered at about 40 seconds per frame with 1 bounce for each diffuse and glossy. (distributedpath integrator/lowdiscrepancy/hilbert)
4 samples per pixel.
Don't watch it too long as you'll get an epileptic attack or a headache
The effect is'nt that good as i'd require separate tracks of the different channels of the music to properly
create motion for individual 'movements' in the music...
I'll try and extend it a little and make it nicer
Haven't done much on the artistic side, it could use some more materials
I've got an early/experimental version of luxblend here which allows IPO animation of *ALL* lux float/color/config parameters
I'll check it in soon.
That should allow me to make it very interesting
Here's the mpg video (15 MB):http://www.luxrender.net/terrence/liccfli1.mpg
