# WCCChallenge: HyperSpace

Kofi / Illestpreacha
·Dec 4, 2022·

For this week's Creative Code challenge by @sableRalph : HyperSpace, I decided to have colours play with their shadow companion via SonicPi

The picture above was made with Pixray in April with the following prompt :

"The Winter Spoke as the Summer Froze"

``````The Winter Spoke as the Summer Froze
The Summer moved as its will was told
For the speed of light
And the directions of left and right
To describe the movements were starting to lack
As it had directions beyond up and down
For the places, it was going, were devising new sounds
New ways to get around
``````

When thinking of this quote, I decided that my approach to this creative code challenge will take the concept of HyperSpace from the following excerpt:

`"While generally associated with science fiction, hyperspace-like concepts exist in some works of fantasy, particularly ones which involve movement between different worlds or dimensions. Such travel, usually done through portals rather than vehicles, is usually explained through the existence of magic." - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperspace`

During last week's creative Code challenge: Shadow Math, where I implemented the following equation: Length = height / tan(angle) to get the shadow of colours to come through. I realized that if something is moving faster than the speed of light, then it shouldn't be casting a shadow.

### Last Week - Shadow Math of Forest Green

``````#Forest Green
ForestGreen = [34,139, 34]

with_fx :ixi_techno do
live_loop :forestGreen do
i = 0
use_synth :pretty_bell
play ForestGreen[i] ,release: 3
sleep [0.5,1,2].choose
if i < 4
i+= 1
end
end
end

with_fx :ixi_techno do
i = 0
use_synth :pretty_bell
play ForestGreen[i]/Math.tan(70) ,release: 3
sleep [0.25,0.5,1,2].choose
if i < 4
i+= 1
end
end
end
``````

As hyperspace deals with teleportation and potential movement across universes, the following adjustments to the previous code will be made

• An increase of bpm between 300 to 500 will reflect the sudden change in velocity

• Since teleportation involves two points as well as hyper travelling, I will be estimated that 3 shadows can appear/disappear at the time

• The entry point of this transportation will be handled by a Hydra Sketch: Portal Entry

``````osc(20, ()=> Math.cos(time)/ 89 + 0.1, ()=> Math.sin(time % 17) + 0.2).colorama(()=> (time % 10)/9 + 0.02).kaleid([11,4,5,6,5,4,3,45]).diff(osc(20, 0.001, 2).rotate(()=> time % 360)).blend(o0, [0.94,0.75,0.31]).modulateScale(osc(10, 0),-0.03).scale(()=> (time % 11)/9 + 0.2, () => (1.05 + 0.1 * Math.tan(0.05*time))).out(o0)

speed = 0.89
``````

``````

ForestGreen = [34,139, 34]

with_fx :ixi_techno do
i = 0
use_bpm 400
use_synth :pretty_bell
play ForestGreen[i]/Math.tan(70),release: 3
play ForestGreen[i]/Math.tan(120),decay: 3
play ForestGreen[i]/(Math.tan(47)).abs,sustain: 3
sleep [0.25,0.5,1,2].choose
if i < 4
i+= 1
end
end
end

### Brown + Shadow + Hyperspace

``````#Brown, Brown Shadow + HyperSpace Brown Shadow

Brown = [165, 42, 42]

with_fx :vowel do
live_loop :Brown do
i = 0
use_synth :dull_bell
play Brown[i] ,release: 3
sleep [0.5,1,2].choose
if i < 4
i+= 1
end
end
end

with_fx :whammy do
i = 0
use_synth :dull_bell
play Brown[i]/Math.tan(70) ,release: 3
sleep [0.25,0.5,1,2].choose
if i < 4
i+= 1
end
end
end

with_fx :whammy do
i = 0
use_bpm 450
use_synth :dull_bell
play Brown[i]/Math.tan(70) ,release: 3
play Brown[i]/Math.tan(120),decay: 3
play Brown[i]/(Math.tan(47)).abs,sustain: 3
sleep [0.25,0.5,1,2].choose
if i < 4
i+= 1
end
end
