fluke should be the translation for the german word "zufall". maybe
coincidence is the better word for this.
i want to generate surfaces, tables, boxes, geometrical forms in strobo
speed style. this objects be generated through coincidence algorythms. so
for example i have 4 boxes which change the color and the size every frame
per coincidence.

Gem can generate graphics at the usual 20/25 fps, which already is

i will check Gem, sounds that this is what i need.

Popular choices for scripting languages in Pd include Lua and Python.

my choice would be python, but i think maybe Gem is mighty enough to do what
i need.

thanks a lot
