Abstract
Oscillator Pond is a sound installation project developed as part of an environment art-science conference program, Atmospheres. The work introduced a randomized soundscape into a greenhouse. Organic sounding rhythms and creature-like tones were generated on an ARP 2500, a synthesizer made in the 1970s, and were then captured digitally. The critter sounds are triggered with custom software using probability and random processes to create a surreal and unpredictable soundscape that changes throughout the day. Visitors can interrupt this ‘organic mode’ to hear specific critter sounds and activate some special playback modes.
