Hartverdrahtet, Insipidly Green Fractalverse Music Video

Intricate infinite complex layers of green crystalline fractal structures turn, swing and zoom  wilfully towards and away from our gaze as the melodious music takes us on an indefinite journey, always remaining doggedly green until detail merges into bright light, of Hartverdrahtet.

This intriguing and entertaining music video by Sérgio Bernardino won the PC 4kB intro competition at Revision 2012 for the latest example of the compact-coding tradition exercised within the demoscene. Hartverdrahtet roughly translates to hard wired is a three minute audio-visual trip into a procedural fractalverse, compressed into a minuscule piece of software.

Demoscene is a computer art subculture of world wide non-commercial network of creative PC coders more so referred to as sceners involved in the making of so called 'demos'. Demos are computer generated music clips that reveal how some particular kinds of graphic and sound effects can be achieved by using high-end computer hardware to its full potential.

Right on the edge of the 'event horizon' matter shrinks and hurtles possibly beyond the speed of light, towards the singularity, graphically seen in the image here.

Since you can't see black holes directly, how do we know they are there? ;The following documentary video tries to tell the story of black holes up to the first observation of one.
