Glenn Marshall has released his finished version of Metamorphosis, a beautiful piece of computer generative art programmed in Processing. I wish I knew a bit more about what I was seeing, but I can only guess that the branches and butterflies follow certain laws of nature and rules defined by the music (I hope). Nevertheless, it’s beautiful. Here’s the video below, but go to Vimeo to watch the video in all it’s HD glory.
Metamorphosis is a followup to Marshall’s first video – Music is Math, which is equally beautiful:
Beautiful! I really wish I had some more insight on how these are created. My briefs jaunts with processing are simple (move boxes around) I just think I’m missing a bridge somewhere. Anyone have example code for making music detection (beat detection, etc.) visualization with Processing?

@Andreas – for starters, you should check out the Processing libraries available:
Take a look at the sound section.
Looks like Minim might be a good place to start… thanks again.
Of of the top of my head, this looks like a variant of Lindenmayer systems:
L-systems are a fun subject where fractals, linguistics, and computer science meet.
In any case these are breathtaking visualizations.
