Default Making Music and Sound -- Musical Sine

I may get banished from the forum or run out of town but here is my humorous entry for this challenge!

First, let me say that no cameras (or cell phones) were harmed in the making of this image. Actually, no cameras or cell phones were used in the making of this image.

This is one of the visualizations or animated backgrounds available in Windows Media Player. I happened to have a Disney track of "The Tiki Room" playing and this is what I saw, animated, of course.



OK...Please don't throw eggs or water baloons. I'll see if I can find something more legitimate.

Cal, being a science teacher I immediately saw sine waves. It was also reminiscent of my days as a radioman on board a nuclear submarine. Oh wait, that was probably the searing headachy hangover part...

Cal,
I am reminded of my early high school days when I first saw an oscilloscope in action displaying the iconic sine wave form of voltage out of an ordinary outlet. very novel approach.
Cheers

Media Player has an oscilloscope visualization but it is not as spectacular as the Musical Sine.

Awww...
you got me. I can hear a sound when looking at that image. I have an oscilloscope in mind, back in the days at school when you change the frequency and see how the curves change. A lissajous curve would have been even better, though

A Lissajous would require more than one signal. It requires one signal driving the horizontal and another driving the vertical. OK, this is getting way off topic.

SMAC, can you say what boat you were on and when? I was a nuclear power plant operator on the USS Long Beach CGN9 in the late 60's.
