the language of the age

This project collides three oscillators (sin, saw, tri) on low frequencies to results interesting rhythmic patterns.

These patterns trigger audio samples and synthesisers in Max and SuperCollider. One audio sample, where a young child, Akashi says ‘mathematics is the language of the age’ is further controlled by hand gestures.


tools: Max/MSP, SuperCollider, Max external bonk and Open Sound Control (OSC)
