Italian developer Tonality Systems announced on Thursday the release of
Symbolic Composer 5.1 3D. The software combines traditional composition tools with more advanced features that enable you to turn music into 3D art with the help of the over 1,000 fractal and chaos mathematics-based algorithms included in the package. This upgrade adds VRML2 macros that “let the composer fuse together music and architecture,” according to the company. VRML2 is the standard for displaying 3D images on the Web, which means this addition allows you to both construct 3D images based on music and compose music based on 3D images.
Tonality Systems did not indicate pricing for either this upgrade or the full version of Symbolic Composer 5.1. A limited-function demo is available for download from the company’s Web site, however. Mac OS X v10.2 and 64MB RAM are required.
