Screen Dive: Grinding Gears by Eagle WU

This concert has already taken place. Click here for our current concert programme.

The life of gear is to grind and spin, and finally ascend into gold coins while blessing other gears to grind more. Don’t hesitate to power up the gears to push them to their limits! The city depends on you to produce more gold coins! Don’t worry! You are doing good! People will cheer you up for your work!

The single-player version of Grinding Gears is a simulation of a city of gears made in different countries, made to simulate and compare the daily routines of two different countries while using the simulation data as a source to change parameters of sound. The multiplayer version of Grinding Gears allows everyone to add simulations using their own parameters on the same platform, while being able to mess with each other’s simulations, creating a collectively generated ever-changing virtual sound world.
