iTunes new visualizer is Magnetosphere

Venture Beat confirmed that the new visualizer in iTunes 8 is Robert Hodgin’s Magnetosphere, which was earlier postulated by Allen White, and picked up by Create Digital Music (which doesn't share all content with Create Digital Motion).

For more on Hodgin, see an earlier post Flocking with 3D Perlin noise, which was born from mistaken identity of Trapcode Klangfarbe and AlphaOmega iTunes visualizer (in Mac beta). Not coincidently Trapcode leverages Perlin Noise expertly.
