OSCILLA is an audiovisual installation that explores the oscillating nature of sound, the construction of harmonic structures and their visualization. A scalable interface allows for a variety of physical interactions whereby the positions and movements of people or objects determine the volume and pitch of a set of sine-wave oscillators.
Inspired by the “Oscilla”, votive objects of the Latin tradition, the installation proposes to stimulate a reflection on the fascinating laws that are at the basis of harmonic relations and of our auditory perception in a sort of contemporary and technological game-ritual.
