digital artist miguel chevalier shares his latest installation, ‘oscillations 2020’, which has been unveiled in pittsburgh’s wood street galleries. on view until april 5, 2020, the work presents a new ‘generative virtual-reality’ that has been created to react to music composed by michel redolfi. as the images respond to the music, the result is a moving landscape of colorful graphics that absorb the viewer.

oscillations 2020 has been developed by chevalier with the use of generative software, which creates a waveform in real time according to the frequencies and amplitudes of the music by redolfi. these spectrums of the different sounds of music produce imaginary landscapes. these landscapes, which pass before the viewer’s eyes, present infinite variations: solid or wireframe, steep or flat, in black and white or in a spectrum of color.
