symrep

symrep is an attempt to make a general-purpose, hierarchical, functional representation for media using function composition. Graphs that represent some creative entity are constructed from nested function calls, these graphs can then be sampled at different parameter values with varying results. symrep is written to be parameter-space agnostic, allowing for it to be used for everything from 5.1-channel audio to functional representation of 3D models.

For example, the source code for audio synthesis (using the symrep.audio package) in examples/sound.py gives this sound file from the following graph:

The source code for solid modelling (using the symrep.solids package) in examples/solids.py gives these solid bodies (rendered by MeshLab):
