Music Mathematics (Original Mix)
The relationship between math, physics, music, and art is tightly intertwined. Fittingly we packaged math, art, music, royalties, instant liquidity, and scarcity into an NFT project dubbed as EulerBeats.
If you could fly through a music NFT, this would be it. The release pushes the boundaries of 3D generative art and music. The shape is inspired by the geometric form of a Möbius strip. In a nod to Euler, the visuals have a non-orientable surface with Euler characteristic being zero. In plain English: there is no inside or outside designation of the surface.
Randomly generated music + art. The core NFT concept for Futura. Can be used as an input for a Remix. The only way to mint a Futura Mix will be to purchase a Futura Mixpass. Mixpass holders will be able to mint Futura Mixes throughout the Mixpass redemption period without needing to worry about gas wars. 8080 randomly generated Futura Mix NFTs. These NFTs will be provably unique combinations of generative music and visuals, created using a set of original musical building blocks produced by Eulerbeats. *The 8080 number was inspired by the famous 808 Drum sample.
The Remix is a combination of two Futura Mix NFTs. Any two Futura Mix NFTs can be combined to create a unique remix. (note: Master and Remix NFTs can also be used) Remixes will be created by holders of Mix NFTs. Via a fun and engaging website front end, holders will be able to select musical traits from the Mixes they hold to create new, unique Remix NFTs. Remixes themselves will be able to be further remixed via the same mechanism.
