this is really fantastic. christiana yambo over at censtron wanted to show us how to make a wave vessel — a television-turned-audio oscilloscope machine.
their documentation shows you how to take an old television set and hook it up to your stereo for audio/visual effects the likes of which most people only see in winamp. a switch on the side of the tv allows you to choose between two visualization modes.
you can see a video of the wave vessel in operation on their site, complete with a ‘you spin me round’ dead or alive soundtrack. my opinion: pete burns looks much better on the wave vessel.
