Isotonik Studios has announced the release of a new Max for Live device in the World Collection series.
Lissajous is a real-time audio reactive graphics application built in Max/MSP and inspired by the work of Jules Antoine Lissajous.
Lissajous was first released as a standalone application and Max for Live device on Audiobulb Records and is now fully compatible with the Isotonik World Collection. The included World Viewer allows you to combine the outputs of various World Modules into a single window.
The media project is born with the purpose of investigating the relationship between sound and vision, chaos and order, closely related to astronomy, mathematics & physics. It explores the field of harmony and disorder and let the user dip into an elegant, dreamlike, minimalistic yet chaotic space which reflects the complex rules of the universe in all its abstract beauty.
The software shows sound oscillations as XY matrix functions and creates complex graphics curves. Lissajous graphically describes sound and allow observation of constantly varying signal voltage of two audio signals as function of time. Video generated by sound can be controlled in endless ways by giving to the user the possibility of a whole-new range of interactions.
Lissajous is available for £30 GBP at Audiobulb.
