This piece is inspired by the Youtube movie named “Pendulum Waves”. The mathematical aesthetics of pendulums motion still attract us strongly. Although each of them swings individually in its own cycles, we sometimes see the linkage between pendulums, synchronized rolls and shapes of waves.
We feel the beauty of motion in every moment. That is the gift of important human ability “Interpretation” that makes people enjoying art possible. In this piece, I create sound texture completely synchronized to 15 pendulums motion. I make the Pd patch based on the formula of pendulum motion that triggers 15 sine wave oscillators. Every 51 oscillations of the longest pendulum, whole pendulums are synchronized and restarted. ADSR envelopes and delay effects control tastes of sound textures. This is the challenge to “Interpretation” of pendulum motion described in sound.
