Generative Art Installation 2021, Online
AlphaXmas is a Web Installation in the field of Computer Generated Art, providing an experience of a growing Christmas tree and a generated Christmas melody playing in the background. As any respectable Christmas tree, light decorations are added and they blink at the tempo of music.
Each time the webpage is loaded, a unique tree and melody are generated: occasionally, a star on top of the tree might appear once it stops growing. Additionally, the user can observe the tree from different angles by simply moving their head, giving a 3D feeling to the installation.
This project was developed for the course "Creative Programming and Computing" from MSc degree in Music and Acoustic Engineering at Politecnico di Milano.
