This auction is for the first 3 editions of COUNTERSOUL. There are 25 editions in total. The top bidder wins #1, the second place bidder wins #2, the third place bidder wins #3.


— CLICK TO VIEW COUNTERSOUL LIVE —


COUNTERSOUL is a new, generative musical composition and visual work by generative music group, Music Non Stop. Its development began in late 2021 and completed in January 2023.Now made possible with Ordinals, COUNTERSOUL is the first generative musical composition to be inscribed on to the Bitcoin Blockchain.


COUNTERSOUL brings the fundamentals of the Bitcoin blockchain into a generative musical system, which has been built from scratch. The code is pure HTML, CSS and Javascript using only built-in functions provided by standards-compliant browsers. The final 36KB work does not use any external libraries.
Thanks to the new developments that Ordinals allow, the code now exists on-chain and can be easily recreated by anyone in the future, making the work forever immutable.


COUNTERSOUL's algorithmic base continually generates all aspects of the music and visual elements in real time based on the current block height number of the Bitcoin blockchain.


The code uses a single block height API call to drive the entire work, which remains easily interchangable by the user to ensure the work remains operational forever. The block height value is converted to a Hex color code and is used to determine the main colour featured in the work at any time.


Blocks are continually added to the bitcoin blockchain, so COUNTERSOUL evolves as this proceeds. The frequency of changes to the block height is unpredictable, but on average a block is added approximately every 10 minutes. In addition, COUNTERSOUL responds in different ways to special block height numbers and events such as the mining difficulty adjustments, halvenings etc. and is programmed to continue doing this into the future.


The sounds produced in COUNTERSOUL are custom virtual synthesizers, which are passed through effects for additional spaciousness and ambience, utilizing delays (echoes) and reverberation which are built from scratch in the code.

When the work first loads it is silent, clicking anywhere on the screen (or pressing 'm') will start (or pause) the music.
- Press 'f' to toggle full screen.
- Press 'p' for a .png screenshot (browser may ask for permissions).
- Press 'h' to pause the visuals.
