SOMERS - Come out and see The Oscillators perform at the BMO Harris Noon Concert on Friday, Oct. 13, at noon. The free concert will be held in Bedford Concert Hall at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, 900 Wood Road.
Originating in 2013, four music students formed a group to learn a few covers to perform at The Beat music club event, Coverfest. This is where they discovered a passion for making music together. With the addition of a rapper and beatboxer, The Oscillators were complete! They named themselves after a "Eureka!" moment in a Physics of Music class while learning about "harmonic oscillations," another term for sound waves.
As a band that started out as a cover band, the primary focus of The Oscillators consisted of taking songs unconventional songs, and reinventing them, with an entirely new spin. However, the idea of writing original music stewed in the members' minds and within a few months, the first two originals, “City Slacker” and “Free”, made their debut.
The Oscillators have been working to expand their repertoire of original compositions. With classical music, pop, folk, and hip hop all in consideration, they incorporate both traditional acoustic and contemporary instruments to create an eclectic blend with an abundance of harmony, raw beatboxing, and rapping. Creating a musical collaboration between seven people isn't easy, so it takes a special formula. It starts with a skeleton brought to the group, and each member adds their respective parts with their own personal artistic style. It is through the separate identity of each member that gives The Oscillators their innovative sound.
