This is a 10 min excerpt (the end) of "Viral Venture" - a digital art projection (and/or ongoing installation) by the artist Joseph Nechvatal with a musical score by the composer Rhys Chatham.
The "Viral Venture" projection consists of Joseph Nechvatal's most recent artificial-life computer virus attacking his digital images. It acts in real time as modeled on the biological viral mode as programmed by Stephane Sikora in C++.
Rhys Chathams score consists of his 2005 composition for 400 electric guitars entitled "A Crimson Grail", commissioned by Nuit Blanche. It was performed and recorded at the Sacré-Coeur Basilica in Paris.
