SEELEWASCHEN was composed by Karlheinz Essl for an outdoor light installation by the German artist Rainer Gottemeier. Using the sound of one single bell stroke as its basic material, the piece unfolds a rich sonic cosmos by a computer program written by the composer. Taking advantage of compositional algorithms that have been developed by Karlheinz Essl since the early 1980ies, the piece is generated in realtime. It can be perceived as a sonic organism which might serve as a source for inspiration and meditation, running forever and ever...

Here we are, Lionized system, and Seelewaschen still works! I just had to reset the audio settings. I still love this program.

Can we have an iPad app also? It's perfect for the iPad. Please?

I just love this... I'm also loving the other stuff Karlheinz Essl has on his website (http://www.essl.at/sounds.html). This particular piece does indeed sound like Brian Eno, particularly - of course - his Clock of the Long Now album, which is also made entirely with bells (available at http://www.longnow.org/shop/prints-cds/bells-cd.php).

One interesting fact, though. The previous version - 1.1-UB - worked fine on my machine that's still running Panther. This new one just hung and apparently is just for Tiger. Works great on my PowerBook G4 running 10.4.8! Check this one out!

Instant Brian Eno - really really cool. Export to iTunes would be neat.

I like this piece of art very much. It has always been rock-solid on all the machines I had it on since it came out. Never expected an update, cool.

One of the best pieces of FREEWARE. No, it is not a tool, it is a real piece of ART. Sampled sounds continuing forever without obvious repetition. Like other ART you may like it or not; it happens that I do like it. I wish there would be more exchange of Mac-Computer-Art like this one. Bravo to the artist, you made me even write my first MacUpdate comment ever.

In contrast to other opinions, Seelewaschen runs on several of our Macs without any hitch (mostly on Panther). The problems seen by others never happened to me.

This is a neat program, very relaxing and great for meditation I would say.

This piece neither requires nor offers any user interaction. It runs entirely on its own, driven by its internal compositional algorithms which ensure variability and richness, even over a long time.
