Peer pressure is a simulation of a process which causes large groups of fireflies to flash in synchrony. This composition simulates 200 fireflies. Initially they are all flashing at random, but slowly they start to come into syncrhony. Can a few mavericks resist the relentless pressure of the group, once it forms?
The piece uses a combination of C++, Python and Csound. The sound used to represent the flash of a firefly is derived from a cicada buzz.
