Animated music videos, contrast and compare: Sine wave vs Coltrane

Oscillate is a new video by New York animator Daniel Sierra. Sierra says the project was an attempt “to visualize waveform patterns that evolve from the fundamental sine wave to more complex patterns, creating a mesmerizing audio-visual experience in which sight and sound work in unison.”

Israeli artist Michal Levy created this Flash-animated music video for John Coltrane’s classic Giant Steps a dozen years ago in Jerusalem.
