oscilloscope music and games with pure data

This is a workshop I gave at Maker Faire Rome 2019. For more information on my work on this topic, also see my Oscilloscope Game Plonat Atek .

description

In this workshop we will learn how to view and listen to Oscilloscope Music, how it works, and how to create your own Oscilloscope Music using PureData. Please bring a laptop and headphones to participate.

Oscilloscope Music is music produced in such a way, that when the stereo signal is applied to an Oscilloscope screen, the same signals that are heard create a visual animation.

You can see some examples of Oscilloscope Music created by Jerobeam Fenderson here:

In this workshop, we will cover the following:

  • What is Oscilloscope Music?
  • How do Oscilloscopes work?
  • How do Speakers and Audio Waves work?
  • Simulating an Oscilloscope on your laptop
  • Creating Oscilloscope Sounds using the PureData visual programming language

No special experience is required for this workshop. Please bring a laptop and headphones! If you are using an Operating System other than Windows and Mac OS X, please install “purr-data” before the workshop.
