Oscilloscope Music and Blender

Hansi Raber

Friday 28 October Theater 30

(Applied uses of Blender)

Hansi spent the last two years programming a "3d oscilloscope music" synthesizer, a musical genre that does not (yet) really exist. The challenge is to craft special stereo waveforms that appear as geometric shapes when viewed in an x-y plot such as an oscilloscope or a vector scope.

Blender objects and animations are used as the main source of timbre and geometry.

The application is created in accord with Jerobeam Fenderson, and will be released at the same time as his album "Oscilloscope Music".
