Stickup is a code-based generative lyrics video I directed and programmed for the track Stickup by Karma Fields & MORTEN featuring Juliette Lewis. The entire lyrics video consists of multiple stages that are programmed and generated using Processing.

Its generative system is partially derived from the one previously used in Build the Cities. The lyrics are parsed, making each layer of the quad-tree structure subdivides itself to a corresponding pattern.

  1. Hello there! Great work as always! I’m not going to ask you to show us the code for this, but I will ask you if you would like to create a few tutorial on how to create some kind of these effects. Not the whole shabang, just pieces of it.

    Could you also recommend a few sources to learn about these types of work?

    Keep up the great work and good luck going forward!

    • Thx. I plan to open up part of the code regarding the Bézier curve subdivision soon, which was both applied in this one and previously Build the Cities. Will keep you posted.

      There are many communities and resources online to get started with Processing. Tutorials on its official site might be a good start if you’ve never used it before.

      • Awesome! I’ll look over those tutorials! Thank you!

    Hey man, any chance we could get high-res screenshots for use as wallpapers? Your visuals looks insane and I’d love to have some as wallpapers. Great job, man!

    Hi there,

    Will you be using Tensorflow in your projects in the future?
