Energy lines (2005)

A blast from the past…

Realtime interactive animation of walking underneath a high voltage pylon. The sound is created by four sinewaves, each which has a pitch determined by the distance between the viewer and each of the four feet of the pylon, creating a constantly shifting phase pattern (you probably need headphones or a subwoofer to hear this).

Both sound and visuals are ’embellished’ with compression artefacts – the sound really is just four soundwaves, and the background of the visuals is a smoothely changing plain colour – both difficult to reproduce with compression.
