"Oscillate" is my thesis piece from the Computer Art MFA program at School of Visual Arts. Finished in May 2013, it has been shown in film festivals, galleries and events around the world, as well as winning a 2014 Student Academy Award in the Alternative category.
While in many ways a tribute to my love of art, computers and music, 'Oscillate' is mostly inspired by the emergence of complexity in sound from the combination of fundamental sine and cosine waves, which even on their own have a very beautiful, pure and calming effect both visually and aurally. This concept of complexity from simplicity is represented abstractly here, but is an artistic nod to Fourier Analysis, which is used in the countless areas that rely on signal processing, from speech recognition to computer vision to music production and far more.
The music was composed by myself, done in tandem with the visuals.
