Oscilloscope Music & Open Lab

Jerobeam Fenderson & Hansi Raber: Introduction to Vector Synthesis
(open lab/workshop)

Slovenska 54, Ljubljana, 29 & 30 Jan 2019, 17.00 – 21.00

 

Some call it oscilloscope music, and some call it vector synthesis. But the idea remains the same: audio waveforms control the vertical and horizontal movements of a single beam of light to trace shapes, points and curves with a direct relationship between sound and image.

 

During the two-day open lab, Jerobeam Fenderson and Hansi Raber will explain the basics of vector synthesis while providing hands-on instructions with a set of basic oscilloscope music hardware: an oscilloscope, a laptop and a sound card. The artists will display different custom-made software tools to support the making such music, and explain some of the tricks they use to achieve the visuals and sound they want. You can drop by at any time to get a hands-on introduction on the topic and nerd out about how cool analogue oscilloscopes are!

 

Participation is free of charge. The lectures will be held in English.

“Jerobeam Fenderson is one to watch, that much is certain. He’s shaping up to be the Shirobon of the oscilloscope scene. His live shows are reportedly an incomparable experience.” STEEMIT

 

“Oscilloscope Music” is an audio-visual project where the visuals are drawn by the music’s own soundwaves. In order to get the closest possible correlation between image and sound, the same signal that is connected to the left and right speakers is also connected to an analogue oscilloscope’s X and Y inputs, producing Lissajous figures and complex 3D graphics. Over the span of five years, Jerobeam Fenderson and Hansi3D have created ever more elaborate techniques to explore this largely uncharted field of audio-visual music. Their live set will include new material from their upcoming EP.
