for gregory chaitin
michael winter (piano)
a realization of a subset of ‘omega’ (or chaitin’s constant): a maximally complex, incomputable number defined
as the halting probability for some universal, prefix-free turing machine. the subset of omega used for this realization
(given by the bit string on the cover) is presented in the 2002 article by cristian calude et al. entitled computing a glimpse of randomness.
