Waves II is an experimental video about sound. Created using Pure Data, an audio programming language, the video explores the relationship between sound, mathematics and visual representation. Using code, various waveforms such as the sine, tan and sawtooth wave are created and mixed in order to disrupt the visual-auditory relationship unique to each wave type. As the piece progresses the visual degrades and becomes incomprehensible. Yet where our eyes fail, the ears do not, and they are able to identify the individual oscillations.
