All matter has its pulsing movement, the vibration is everywhere. According to some theorists the Big Bang was simply the beginning of a period of an expansion that followed a period of contraction. Motion is in every atom, cells, stones, waters, planets and universe. It is a process of the whole body goes through from the moment of birth until the moment of death. 

 

Oscillate is a trip into a shivering space, where the expansion of sound and the contraction of muscles, either voluntary or involuntary, fluctuate like the breath. The pulse throbs in all of us, simultaneously, in different rhythms, emerging into the state of emptiness between melancholy and bliss.
