# WaveringDotsAround

For the MinaCoding Prompt: **New Function.** I will be coding: **WaveringDotsAround** with **Tixyland & SonicPi. T**he new functions that I have introduced to my workflow are the following:

Returns the result of the 32-bit integer multiplication of x and y.*Math.imul() :**Math.sinh(*Returns the hyperbolic sine of x.*):***Math.cbrt()****:**Returns the cube root of x.*Math.hypot()*Returns the square root of the sum of squares of its arguments.*:*→ [float, -1 or 1]click to toggle source Calculates the logarithmic gamma of x and the sign of gamma of x. (Ruby)*lgamma(x)**gamma(x)**→ Float***:** Calculates the gamma function of x.

## Design Process

Used the above-mentioned functions in both the audio and visuals

The dots are overlayed sketches done by TixyLand

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 reds. As well as their shadow/shuffle counterparts to add variance to the soundscape. So when watching, you are experiencing both red as a colour and a sound. With the addition of new math functions, the shadows have been reimagined

## Code

### Tixyland

```
imul(t,y)/(sinh(t/i)+tan(t/y^3)+cos(t/x))/sqrt(i/t) + cbrt(y/t)
```

### SonicPi
