In this vein, ten years ago when I did Feedback Music performances I hooked
up an oscilloscope to my L&R outputs to get Lissajou (sp?, sorry) patterns
which my video buddy trained his camera on.  He colorized, etc., and
displayed that output on a small monitor which had a second camera on it.
The video feedback loops were pretty cool and looked great when we
projected them in accompaniment to the live Feedback Music and ITS loops.

That said, I'm sure there must be computer software nowadays which creates
nifty realtime video output from audio sources.  Anyone know of any,
especially Mac freeware or shareware?  One of these days I'd like to
perform again, and twisting knobs (or moving a mouse) sure doesn't make for
an enthralling show....
