OscillWalker explores a generative line with oscillating movements through three-dimensional space while a virtual camera attempts to keep up. It was filmed by rescanning a modified Vectrex vector display. Furthermore it explores possibilities of XYscope, a library by Ted Davis for Processing that converts vector graphics to audio in order to be redrawn using a vector display (oscilloscope, Vectrex, laser) – in which the left/right and up/down path movements are translated to left/right stereo audio (two oscillators with custom waveforms). With a direct correlation between the visual and audio components, the resulting film explores techniques for creating visual music using new + newer media.
