Topic Interaction Design
Abstract Analog oscilloscopes in X-Y mode visualizing stereo audio signals have previously been used for artistic purposes. Digital implementations enable additional layers of creative exploration such as the introduction of colors or layering the output of mul- tiple oscilloscopes. Thereby, the connection of image and sound can be extended and the audiovisual experience potentially enhanced. In this context, the thesis docu- ments the prototypical development of a sound synthesis and visualization technique and a performance which incorporates several possible means of using it for artistic expression. In addition, the technical foundations are established and related topics such as psychology of perception and other projects that inspired Eden are discussed.
