# MinaCoding2023_Blue

·

Today's MinaCoding Prompt is Blue. BluishBlues will be coded audiovisually thru LiveCodeLab and SonicPi.

• The visuals are layered by animations coded in LiveCodeLab

• The sounds are coded in SonicPi using a concept of shadow maths and colour shuffling, where in this case the sounds are made through the values of different blues. As well as their shadow/shuffle counterparts to add variance to the soundscape. So when watching, you are experiencing both blue as a colour and a sound. Slowed down after by 40%

## Poem

``````Bursting of Blues
Brightening with their hues
Belonging to more than a few
Blues like the sky
At various times
Blues like the reflection
Seen on water interactions
Bursting of Blues
Blitzing with their hues
``````

## Code

### LiveCodeLab

``````rot = time / 5

ringDetail = 11
ambientLight 255
noStroke

if time % 10 > 5
fill turquoise

if time % 10 < 5
fill blue

if time % 12 < 6
rotate rot,rot,rot
scale wave(0.003)

if time % 12 > 6
rotate rot, rot * 3, sin(rot)
scale cos(wave(0.12))

29 times with i
rotate (time / 5) + i
ringDetail times
rotate wave(0.03), i, (2 * pi) / ringDetail
move 2*i, 0, 0
rect abs(tan(1 - time % 5)), 0.3 + (1 / ringDetail)
``````

### SonicPi
