‘In short, this is the only book of its kind but a worthy medal winner.  (P. Morris review @ Amazon.co.uk)

‘Absolutely a great read! Learned a lots of new stuff.’  (post in the SC mailing list).

A technical book discussing mapping and visualization with the SuperCollider programming environment.  It features theoretical discussions and code examples on waveform/spectra visualization, kinematics, sonification/audification, computer generated imagery, animation, complex encodings, audio/data analysis, fractals, generative audio-visual systems, waveform/spectra synthesis, neural networks, particle systems, cellular automata, data mappings, communication protocols, machine listening, software design patterns, etc. The book inaugurated the ‘Mapping The Vortex’ series of workshops that took place on various cities internationally.
