"Capriccio, Be Free Like the Butterflies"


Capriccio is a musical term, which means lively and free. The centrepiece of it all is a spiral keyboard, which is where all the music begins and capturing the essence of Capriccio, beautiful butterflies flutter freely.

Following our genesis generative art project Cantabile (in a singing style) which features the fleeting beauty of Sakura captured in eternal code, we wanted to continue to share our love for music and art. Inspired by AlphaCentauriKid's beautiful pianos, we wanted to have a "piano" in code too, so we created Capriccio.

We love the idea of fxparams, whereby we engage our minters to participate in the process of art making. They will be able to create the centrepiece of their choice, in terms of colors and the number of spirals that affect the entire look and feel of the keyboard.

Down to the detail of the number and color of butterflies, the minters will make their choices, whether they are minimalistic or wildly artistic, there is immense freedom to create their dream Capriccio.
