Watch an innovative, one of a kind music video for Born Ruffians directed by Jared Raab, featuring a series of animations recorded entirely off of a vintage oscilloscope. The machine which is usually used for viewing voltages, primarily in the sciences, medicine, engineering, telecommunications and industry, proves to have an incredible artistic potential. “Though other people have reprogrammed oscilloscopes to display images in the past, the “video to scope” process used in this video is the first of its kind. The images you see are made up of a single point of light, moving quickly across a screen in order to draw shapes – that means the entire Born Ruffians video for “What to Say” displays vector images made from only one continuous line. The footage was shot once on video, edited, converted for use on the oscilloscope (using a live visuals program called TouchDesigner) and then shot again directly off the vintage machine” declares director Jared Raab.
