About AvantContra - Experimental Programming

Hi!
I'm Contra Luo (aka AvantContra). I have been a senior game/App/Web developer about 15 years, and now a creative technologist making computational art, generative art, interactive media, and other creative applications.

Experimental Programming, meaning is derived from experimental art, experimental electronics, or experimental music.
And that's how I create things through programming.

The languages/tools I use recently are MaxMSP Jitter, Javascript(React), Python and Blender.
But actually I also use Unity, P5js, Pure Data, GLSL Shader and more sometimes.

On Patreon I will share my computational artwork, patches, source code and experiences in creative projects.

The creating process is usually in videos and articles. For example:
[Coding Druid] series, each part around a topic like mathematical, art, electronic, graphics, sound, etc., implemented in several programming languages:
Chapter: Trigonometric Function
Section: MaxMSP, JavaScript (React), Python, or Unity3D



Chapter: Fourier Series
Section: JavaScript (React), Python + Blender, or Unity3D



And sometimes lightweight demos focusing on the rapid implementation of local effects / functions / algorithms. Such as:





Also more complicated or serious. For example:

Or bigger project:
Drawing anything with Fourier Series using Blender and Python




You also can get the most source code / patches separately in Gumroad.

Some projects out of above are open source, you can find them on:
https://github.com/avantcontra

With your kindly support, I can keep creating more and better meaningful content!
Thank you!
