Modular Diary – 083

Earlier this year, inspired by a lecture by Just van Rossum, I took a look at the ways in which one might translate letter shapes to sound and view them on an oscilloscope. Via Oscistudio, the software I used to make those translations, I got to know a little of Jerobeam Fenderson’s oscilloscope music. He recently published the fourth in a series of video tutorials laying out the technical basis of this art form in a clear and accessible way.

STS has again been as productive as ever, this time with an Audulus Harmonium – an additive oscillator in which the volume and phase of the first twelve overtones of a sound can be individually adjusted: The perfect tool for making some oscilloscope music, should one be so inclined.
