Daniel Sierra's thesis animation is an audio-visual barnstormer!

Posted by Holly Wilkins,

There are many things about this video that will blow you away, firstly this incredible feat of audio-visual amazing-ness is Daniel Sierra’s thesis animation. All of it was created with computer software which he only learnt to use a few months previously. Daniel wanted to “visualise waveform patterns that evolve from the fundamental sine wave to more complex patterns, creating a mesmerising audio-visual experience in which sign and sound work in unison to capture the viewer’s attention.”

The video starts with the simple sine wave which gradually gets more elaborate as the different elements in the music build and builds. Hypnotising to say the least, it takes the iTunes visualizer and wipes it off the face of the earth. Officially blown away? So are we.
