Genesis NFT Collection

Glitch Candies

Glitch Candies is a genesis project launched on Stargaze Launchpad. It is the first hand made generative collection of evolving sculptures created using sound synthesis and GLSL shaders minted on Cosmos ecosystem.

Noise shapes the colour, texture and sound. Each candy is unique and has utility beyond 4k resolution print-ready artwork and HD video.

Glitch Candies collections embrace the intricacies of code, error and seeks beauty in human interaction with blockchain technology.

Noise forms the structure, colour and shape.

Unique forms are captured and minted on Stargaze chain as SG721 token and are interoperable over IBC protocol across Cosmos ecosystem.

Geometry

Glitch Candies are based on simple geometric shapes that are being modified by noise and sound synthesis. They inform aesthetic choises of audio used.

Rarity Recall

Each piece can be recalled in custom made software via JSON file consisting its traits. This way each Genesis artwork will have its audiovisual sculpture companion of the same rarity and traits.

Color

Eye candy colors are used in these works to accent beauty in noisy and glitchy forms or art.

Shaders

Depth, colour and texture of Glitch Candies are affected by especially made GLSL shaders. These short pieces of code are inspired by FedFod`s work in this area.

Audio-visual Collection

Sound Design

Glitch Candies Genesis collection is a collection of images, however holder of each one of them will receive an airdrop of handmade generative audiovisual sculpture.

Audio created in these works was generated using hardware machines and modular synthesisers controlled by voltage. This approach provides flexibility and high quality of sound. Creation of hardware physical setups provide unique sound design and evolving compositions that were specifically designed for this project.

Glitch Candies Project

About

Glitch Candies are about abstract generative art and having fun with tech and blockchain. We love experimenting with art and technology. We are engaging users and are excited about metaverse and what it has to offer. We are exploring Decentraland, creating events, audiovisual experiences and mini games.

Glitch Candies collections explore glitch, eye candy colours and human / computer and blockchain interaction in various forms. Audio, visual, metadata, airdrops, traits all these media are glitched out or randomised in some form.

Glitch Candies AV and Gen2 are all hand sculpted and rendered real-time like mini VJ sets. Both collections contain audio traits specifically composed for user interaction, go match them, play with them on marketplace or in your wallet. Some match, some create generative ambient pieces some glitch out.

Our long term vision is to establish ourselves as NFT Studio and help new and existing projects to engage with users and integrate blockchain, web3 and metaverse strategies.

Mission

Experiment with art on the blockchain

Glitch Candies are created with experimentation in mind. Gasless and inexpensive transactions on Stargaze chain allow flexibility. The aim of the project is to:

  • Create new and exciting high quality artworks.
  • Reward owners, collectors and participants via airdrops, artworks, events and entertainment.
  • Onboard exciting artists to Cosmos ecosystem through collaboration on new works.
  • Support Stargaze and Cosmos ecosystem via staking and providing LP on Osmosis.
  • Explore what NFTs have to offer in interoperable internet of blockchains and in the birth of the metaverse.
