Created on an old Tektronix oscilloscope, King achieves ostensibly animate self-organizing wave forms (composed of literal tracers) by fully exploiting the device’s antiquated Rutt Etra video synthesis technology, generating series upon series of ephemeral crystalline light structures that assemble themselves as quickly as they vanish. The video itself is a collage of multiple live-takes of King processing video where all images are generated by the track’s sinewaves, creating completely synced frequency-based-reactions to the opener’s buoyant journey.
