Climax - Action Bot Concert
by Margarete Jahrmann and Max Moswitzer (AT)
A Machinima Re Emerge
In a demo movie Game-Bots generate their own permanent Sound Jam
Session. Their assumed artificial intelligence is changed through
Mutators that are interfering with the program structure. The activity
pattern of Bots is then used to mutually trigger them, and to change
their actions. Sometimes this ends in feedback loops that are unpredictably
cancelled by certain events.
The Interface rather forms sound than a visual humanoid representation.
Its structure of actions can be perceived as a permanent Bot Concert
that perpetuates itself. Unlike trivial Films Climax is produced
according to real time terms and regularly changes its transformation
rules. The Bot Concert is visible in a sneak preview situation on
a projection screen that is controlled from a PC. Climax's interface
represents a social rather than a technical environment that surrounds
Machinimas via its Clan-Communities.
