My friend mmyykk keeps me up on what's cool in music and technology-related art. Found this youtube link in my idle iChat window after I came back to the computer tonite. Thanks, Mike! Reminds me of a General Electric 3D ultrasound... maybe its the same technique... in any case... check it out:


Finally finished the Jack & the Beanstalk project, where we provided the CGI part for a composite by Cade Martin and Michal Horevaj. This is a close-up from the GI rendering on an 8 core. Each square represents one of the processors working on resolving the image. I wonder who gets to design the look of this render progress feedback mechanism. Whoever it is, it's a work of art on its own. Truth told I almost like it better than the rendered result.
