Description

VOSC is a visual particle synthesizer that allows for the manipulation of large numbers of on screen particles through the use of oscillators. By manipulating the size, shape, and frequency of the oscillators, intricate patterns can be created.

History

VOSC is an abstraction and systemization of interactive experiments developed in 2007 to 2008, which can be found at http://glyfconstruct.com. These experiments, and VOSC, were inspired by the phenomenon of visual harmony as explored by the computer graphics pioneer and visual artist John Whitney in the mid 20th century. The oscillators of VOSC operate in accordance with Whitney's principle of differential motion, giving rise to harmonic resonances as their frequencies move across whole ratios.

Features

  • Rendering and pattern synthesis is powered by GPU shaders, allowing for the manipulation of millions of particles.
  • Load preset patches and save your own into the bank.
  • Simple sharing of screens with other users of VOSC.

About Fuguelike

Boilerplate
Fuguelike, formerly Glyf Design, is a digital creative studio run by Duncan Holby. The name Fuguelike has a double connotation. First it is the name for the baroque form of music that has a formal patterned structure and a mathematical beauty. There is also the fugue state – a memoryless dreamlike trance. The aim of the studio is to channel both into digital experiences, from generative graphics to games.
