My Story

For my exhibits I’d like to seek out the possibility of points lines and planes also how these elements can interact with sound, I want people can see the sound with these elements, so I want to use surrounding sound combine with abstract visual to create a surreal experience

this exhibit consists of an abstract visual and a Shepard tone soundtrack, the soundtrack was produced in Ableton, and it is consisting of a superposition of sine waves separated by octaves, when played with the bass pitch of the tone moving upward or downward, it is referred to as the shepard scale. This creates the auditory illusion of a tone that seems to continually ascend or descend in pitch, yet which ultimately gets no higher or lower. I also added a garage drum loop make it more rhythmic. the visual was created in 3D software Cinema 4d, which is an infinite loop of ongoing mountain and river, the content was only consist of simple lines just like sound every complex sound is consisted of simple sound wave, so I want audience can see the sound by my visual.
