Explanation of AutoArt

AutoImages:

AutoImages works by creating random functions using Markov Chains. Every image on your computer is made up of many very small squares called "pixels". Each pixel has a red, green and blue value. If a pixel has a red of 255, a green of 0, and a blue of 0, the pixel will be red. AutoImages creates 3 functions, the red function, green function, and blue function. Each function takes in the x and y position of each pixel (where the pixel is), and returns the red, green, or blue value for that pixel.

AutoAudio:

All audio is stored as a series of samples. Each sample has a y position. For example the function

\\ y(t) = sin(880 \pi t)\\ $If$t$is the time at which the sample is played sounds like an A on a piano. AutoAudio creates a random function, then plays it. S(t) =$ the $y$ position of sample at time \$t
