About the project

An audio-visual composition programmed in Max7. The basic building blocks for the audio are three rectangle waves of which the pulse-width is being modulated by LFO’s and also the fundamental frequencies of the waves are detuned in various small amounts. On top of that is a chain of different sound processing techniques such as amplitude modulation, lowpass filtering, delay-lines and resonance filtering. The end-result is visualized by a three dimensional line (lissajous figure). The composition demonstrates some various lissajous patterns that occur by manipulating the different signal-processing effects. The whole composition is rendered in real-time, and the visuals are directly linked to the audio.
