Actually, I did a project like this myself with granular-ish synthesis in
pd, controled by a boids algorithm in java. I hadn't piped up before,
because I don't know how much I can really help to solve the problem of
programming a swarm in pd. Still, maybe I'll try and put some work I have
done online sometime.
I have followed with great interest the various threads regarding your
swarms project. In fact I am interested in doing a similar thing, but
with audio rather than graphically.
In terms of behavioural model have you looked at a-life algorithms such
as 'boids' (http://www.red3d.com/cwr/boids/). I'm surprised no-one has
mentioned this, or furthermore, implemented it. Or am I missing the
point of what you are trying to do?
