Oscillate – Daniel Sierra

This is already old news as far as internet-time is concerned but this video from Daniel Sierra is stunning regardless when you first see it.  According to Daniel on his website,

My goal with “Oscillate” was 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 to capture the viewer’s attention.

Mission accomplished as you will clearly see in video below.

Soundslice is Awesome

Anyone who has ever tried searching online for guitar or bass tabulature will surely agree what they find is simply crap. Difficult to read ASCII diagrams of tab on sites littered with advertising and a layout that’s ugly as hell.

This is where Soundslice.com comes in and blows everyone out of the water.

Soundslice is an online community where that tabulature is sourced by the musicians with and absolutely incredible layout. Tabulature and chord patterns for multiple instruments is provided at the bottom of the screen while video of the actual song, or musician performing the song, synched with the tabulature found at the bottom.
