Double Well Trap – Rabinal
A continuation from the previous post:
Ramsay Stirling left a comment in the original post with a link to the work of Ray Sweeten who uses oscilloscopes in a real-time performance setting to maximum effect. Pulsating figure-of-eight glyphs freak-out to the harsh drone of a scuzzy saw tooth wave in the intense ‘Altercations’. There is a bunch of other Oscillator waveform works on his site to be explored.
Rabinal has a Flickr set called ‘Chaos’ which aside from the garishly coloured fractals contains some interesting waveform analysis pictures and oscillator graphs. Some nice descriptions too that sound tres sci-fi to the uninitiated, take for example ‘Double-well trap (phase plane)’ – its description contains the poetic annotation ‘A chaotic transient and trap orbit in the double-well electronic oscillator.’
