SineClock, frequencies that mark the time.


The interpretation of the sounds through different domains of knowledge is a practice that flourishes thanks cultural abstraction imposed by the new media and their ability to reduce all knowledge to poison information. This perspective leads us to consider ambivalence sometimes daring, but distinctly perceptible, as in SineClock of Douglas Repetto . This work, which has resulted in two implementations, one hardware and one software, use of sound patterns like hands of a clock, leaving that interact through a similar overlap. Time is thus interpreted as a superposition, in fact, three sets of sine waves from different frequencies, which vary their narrow spectrum respectively in a minute, an hour, and in a day. The closeness of the two frequencies generates a sound perceived as unique but generates a pulse that allows you to determine what time it is. In the floating platform software freely downloadable and flow of sound waves is displayed in three schematic animated bars and layered. The process encoded, therefore, encourages the user to distinguish listening to the parts that are elements, invisible in the case of frequencies, and abstract in the case of the hands. The ability, therefore, to interpret the sound from a new perspective, algorithmically programmed with specific meanings chronological pattern aural transforms into a different medium, the bearer of multiple information.
